We had a great lunch at My China at Westfield Mall and walked to the theater. We traveled form Napa by Ferry from Vallejo and used public transportation from Ferry Building to the Mall.

The program was very moving. Not as much humor as I've heard from him before, very intense.

This is the first time I've been in A.C.T. since it was refurbished - seats were very comfortable, sight line is great, and the knee space is wonderful!!!

A wonderful night at the ACT. Brian Copeland has it all - great presence, a wonderful way of speaking and truly touching stories to which many of us can relate. This is a must-see performance.

Quotes & Highlights

“A beautiful mix of wry humor and heartbreak, indignation, and inspiration, a singular story of extreme isolation that speaks to anyone who’s ever felt out of place” —San Francisco Chronicle

Description

In playwright Brian Copeland’s own words:

“In 1972, 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 magazine covered the story. The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted hearings—and then we moved to town.”
