Brian Copeland to Speak at LPC

Brian Copeland, host of The Brian Copeland Show on San Francisco’s KGO, brings his one-man show, Not a Genuine Black Man, to Las Positas College’s Mertes Center for the Arts on Thursday, February 7 at 7 p.m.

As the longest running solo show in San Francisco history, this presentation, offered free via a grant from the Las Positas College Foundation, explores Copeland’s formative years. “In 1972,” he says, “the National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, California, ‘a racist bastion of white supremacy.’ It was named one of the most racist suburbs in America. CBS News and Newsweek covered the story. The U.S. Commission of Civil Rights conducted hearings. And then, we moved to town.”
