Project Main Details

African American father for history exhibit 
Well established documentary studio is casting for the voice of an enslaved black man in his 30s who worked in the mansion of a Virginia plantation. He and his wife lived in a small slave cabin next to the main mansion).

This is for a short audio program (60-90 seconds) that will play in a reconstructed slave quarters at a historic site as part of an exhibit about slavery and its legacy.

We are looking for voice talent with some acting experience as this needs to part of a believable scene in which a father helps his son learn to read from the Bible. The role of the father has 11 lines.

If interested, please provide a few takes of the two lines that are supplied.

In this imagined scene, a father is teaching his young son to read using the Bible (unlike many people who were enslaved, this couple were literate). It is nighttime and their voices are on the low side so they are not heard by others outside the slave cabin.

Script Details

Father: (coaching his son to read): >> Very good. That’s it. <<
(Now he re-reads the whole verse slowly and confidently so his son can hear it.) >> I am the Lord your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright. <<
