Brian Copeland's one-man show Not a Genuine Black Man has been at The Marsh for more than a year now, making it the longest-running solo show in the last 30 years in the Bay Area. The show details Copeland's experiences when his family moved to racist San Leandro in 1972 when he was a child through some of his life-changing experiences as an adult.
Copeland is working on a book for Hyperion and a fictionalized series for HBO is in the works.
