Join us Sunday September 7th from 3:00-5:00 pm for a funny and thought provoking afternoon with Brian Copeland, star of the award winning show “Not a Genuine Black Man”, at the Alan Harvey Theater , 800 Magnolia Avenue in Piedmont . Brian grew up black in San Leandro in the 60’s and 70’s, when the city was 99% white. His show deals with his experiences growing up as a young black man in an all white community, and with the depression he has struggled with as an adult. His show got rave reviews and was the longest running solo show in San Francisco history.

The event is a joint fundraiser for the Piedmont Appreciating Diversity Committee (PADC) and the PHS/MHS Wellness Center.

PADC promotes global awareness, inclusiveness and an appreciation of differences by providing grants to teachers and supporting diversity programming for all students in the Piedmont Unified School District . PADC also organizes community-wide events like the Appreciating Diversity FilmSeries, Speakers Forums and Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration.

The Wellness Center — now just a year old — provides services to promote emotional, physical and social well-being for Piedmont and Millenium High Schools . It’s joining similar centers all over California to offer teens the range of support they need in high school.

Tickets range from $50-$200.
