The collection also documents Tucker's efforts to share his knowledge about black film and theater, and correspondence from the 1970's and 1980's references his early acting career. There is a folder of letters from an actor friend, Jay Flash Riley, 1979-1980, and a limited number of letters regarding his work as a photographer. The recognition in the 1970's-1980's for his pioneering work as an actor is documented in awards and appreciations presented to him by such organizations as the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame and L.A.-D.C. Connection, Inc.
The collection includes programs and playbills from films and theatrical presentations in which Tucker acted, was the master of ceremonies or the official photographer, 1931-1979. There are also scripts, several authored by Tucker. Included are scripts for plays in which he performed such as "Harvey" and "Ol' Man Satan," and a number of radio dramatizations and television programs.
