Angela Tucker is an internationally recognized speaker on issues of adoption, race, identity and inclusion. She was adopted from foster care by white parents. At the age of 26, she found her biological parents, and shared the journey publicly in an intimate documentary titled “”Closure””. The film had a successful run in the film festival circuit, followed by streaming runs on Hulu (2014), Netflix (2015-2017), and Amazon Prime Video (2018-2021).

Angela has since produced other published media, including her book, “You Should Be Grateful: Stories of Race, Identity, and Transracial Adoption“, available on Amazon and in bookstores across the country.

Angela mentors transracially adopted youth through The Adoptee Mentoring Society, a nonprofit she founded in 2022. In addition, through her company, The Adopted Life, she creates and provides resources to support adoptees and their communities, as well as advocates for transracial adoptive families from the adoptee point of view. She has appeared as a guest speaker on numerous podcasts, videos, and talk-show television and radio programs, as well as a contributor to various print and digital publications on the topic of transracial adoption.
