Chad Goller-Sojourner

Chad Goller-Sojourner
is an adult transracial adoptee, educator, coach, and author of the forthcoming book From Lutefisk and Lefse to Cornbread and Collards: Narratives, Essays, and Interactive Exercises in Transracial Adoption. His personal and professional insights on transracial families have been featured by various media, including Time Magazine and NPR’s Weekend Edition, where his story “Growing Up 'White,' Transracial Adoptee Learned To Be Black.” was selected as the 2014 Pick of the Year. Also an educator, Chad’s work on multi- and transracial identity development has resulted in numerous community and academic appointments, including Visiting Professorships at both Ohio and Radford Universities.

As a writer/performer, Chad is the creator of two highly acclaimed solo shows. Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy is the groundbreaking and crushingly honest story of a bulimic, black boy raised by white parents and struggling to find beauty, acceptance, and safe space, in an all-white world. Riding in Cars with Black People & Other Newly Dangerous Acts: A Memoir in Vanishing Whiteness is the story of what happens when a transracial adoptee “ages out” of honorary white and suburban privilege and into a world where men with black skin are deemed dangerous until proven otherwise.

A frequent contributor to several online transracial adoption communities, Chad continues to advise adoptive parents on the ins and outs of creating healthy and happy transracial families, ones where even the most conflicting of experiences can be reclaimed, transformed, and accepted for what they are: the building blocks of our unique identities.
