African American Girl 15 to 19 for Documentary 
African American Teen Girl 15 to 19 with Alabama Southern Accent for Documentary

We are producing a 40-minute documentary film about Voting Rights in Selma 1965. We are seeking an African American voice actor who can play a 15-19-year-old female student with a native or authentic Alabama accent (or other deep South), and work NON UNION.

The film tells the dramatic and historic story of the 1965 Selma voting rights campaign, and the subsequent march to Montgomery, Alabama. The focus of our documentary is the instrumental role that young people played in the voting rights campaign.

We’re looking for voice over actors to read the parts of the former African American high school students and teachers who were interviewed for the film. We are looking for actors who can read in an authentic sounding southern accent, not an over the top stereotype.

We are on a very tight deadline, and hoping to record people next week in Burbank, CA, or alternately, have them record at their pro home or local studio and email/FTP to us.

Please submit custom voice demo using sides (below), or email your voice audition to: Please choose at least a few paragraphs so we get a good sense of your voice and performance. Thank you!

Age range: from 15-18 years old (Student from Alabama in early 1960s)
Accent: Southern; Alabama

1. The Ku Klux Klan could do anything they want to you. And to know that that could happen to you. I was kind of scared. And I think I was kind of angry too.
Duration: 9 seconds

2. I wanted change. My father would go into a store, this big, handsome, hard-working, strong black man and I’d hear him be called a boy and a nigger. I was hearing this from the time I was six, seven years old, you know. This hurt me a lot.
Duration: 17.5 seconds

3. And the music was the thing that really got the people revved up. At every mass meeting, they said we need a choir.
Duration: 6.5 seconds

4. When Dr. King spoke and said it’s time to move, me and some of my classmates and some of my young friends were saying, you know, all right. We were ready.
Duration: 8 seconds

5. The beauticians started marching, undertakers started marching, but it came at a price. The police became more brutal, and people were constantly being arrested. But the adults and students had become a movement in Selma.
Duration: 13.5 seconds

6. They had us in lines running. They’re making us go. The only thing that was missing from us that day were the slave chains
Duration: 7.5 seconds

7. I remember marching in silence for the first two to three blocks because something didn’t feel right.
Duration: 6 seconds

8. I was in the 19th row from the front.
Duration: 2.5 seconds

9. I remember being called nigger, twice. And I remember being hit twice. I remember biting this hand that was on me. That’s when I was able to start running.
Duration: 10.5 seconds

10. I was running back across the bridge and I saw my sister JoAnn. This man had her in his arms. And she looked like she was dead.
Duration: 7.5 seconds

11. I mean these were white people that were just like we were. No different than we were. They called my dad a "mister." It really was like, phenomenal.
Duration: 9.5 seconds

12. I loved the Berlin Wall because we had the police essentially where we wanted them. And we had fun just outmaneuvering them.
Duration: 7.5 seconds

13. I was determined to go to Montgomery and let George Wallace see what he had done to me, to let him know that he had created his worst nightmare. I was going to get an education. I was going to be there, in their faces at all times. I was going to fight for what was right, at all times. That's what I wanted him to know.
Duration: 19 seconds

14. We did this. And all I could think about was finally they weren’t going to call my daddy a boy anymore.
Duration: 6.5 seconds

15. We did it. We helped get the right to vote.
Duration: 3.5 seconds
