Job Description

We are searching for a talented individual to voice an excerpt from Bass Reeves' personal account of an arrest made in 1890. This excerpt will be one of the few historical accounts included with many current and recently retired police officers sharing their experiences on the job. The actor must be able to perform as if Reeves is recounting the experience in a casual conversation, like he is being interviewed in real time rather than reading from a diary.

Bass Reeves (July 1838 – 12 January 1910) was the first black deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi River. He worked mostly in Arkansas and the Oklahoma Territory. During his long career, he was credited with arresting more than 3,000 felons. He shot and killed 14 outlaws in self-defense.
