One-night-only screening of local adoption story 'Closure'
Seattle WA, — In honor of National Adoption Month, the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute will present a special one-night only screening of the documentary ‘Closure.' The film follows Angela, an African-American woman raised by a Caucasian couple in a large, multiracial family in Washington State after being adopted at one year. As Angela grows older the unanswered questions about her birth story compel her to search for answers. Filmed and edited by her husband Bryan Tucker, the documentary follows Angela through her two-year search for her birth family. Several twists and surprising revelations ultimately lead Angela across the country to Tennessee, where she comes face to face with her birth mother and meets family members who never knew of her existence, including her birth father. Angela and Bryan Tucker will be in the audience for a post-screening Q&A. Tickets available via brownpapertickets.com: Adults $10, Seniors $7, Students $6.
Co-sponsored by the Central District's Good Hair Salon and Amara Parenting.
