In this hilarious and heartwarming prequel to his hit show Not a Genuine Black Man, beloved actor-playwright Brian Copeland recounts three memorable weeks in his youth when he took to the "mean streets" of Oakland to buy his mom the perfect Christmas gift. Rife with references to 1970s Oakland, The Jewelry Box: A Genuine Christmas Story follows six-year-old Brian's adventures as he scours the help wanted ads, applies for jobs and collects bottles, inching his way toward the coveted present, a jewelry box at the local White Front store. Not a Genuine Black Man broke records as the longest running solo show in San Francisco history and brought Copeland critical acclaim as one of the city's most talented and engaging solo performers.
