Angela Moore

From 1997-2000, actress Trina McGee played Angela Moore on 60 episodes on Boy Meets World. McGee’s character was a Black girl who had an interracial relationship with Rider Strong’s character, Shawn Hunter, in the ABC show.

Their up-and-down relationship continued through the college years of Boy Meets World, and ended with an aborted marriage proposal on the series finale. Throughout the series, there were reportedly racial quips written into the script. Angela poked fun at herself as the only Black character on several occasions, with lines such as, “I gotta get more Black friends.”

Since the end of the show, McGee went on play the role of  Cinnamon in the 2002 movie, Friday After Next.
