Description
The longest-running solo play in San Francisco theater history and off-Broadway hit comes to L.A. for two special performances. In 1971, the National Committee Against Discrimination in Housing called San Leandro, California "a racist bastion of white supremacy." Newsweek and CBS covered the story. The US Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings. And then, we moved to town." So begins Brian Copeland's legendary tale of laughter tears and sociology. As a child, he was persecuted for being black. As an adult, he was persecuted for not being "black enough". In this powerful show presented at the Stephanie Feury Studio Theatre in Los Angeles, Brian explores how our surroundings make us who we are.
