Job Description

Hello,
I am looking for a voice actor to narrate “Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice”

Age of target audience: High School students grades 9-12

Artistic Direction: Conversational and Engaged

Delivery: End of April / Beginning of May

This recording will be used in an app for an Education Publisher.

Final File Delivery will be 16bit. 44,100 .wav

Synopsis: Claudette Colvin an impassioned teenager, fed up with the daily injustices of Jim Crow segregation, refused to give her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Instead of being celebrated as Rosa Parks would be just nine months later, fifteen-year-old Claudette Colvin found herself shunned by her classmates and dismissed by community leaders. Undaunted, a year later she dared to challenge segregation again as a key plaintiff in Browder v. Gayle, the landmark case that struck down the segregation laws of Montgomery and swept away the legal underpinnings of the Jim Crow South.
Based on extensive interviews with Claudette Colvin and many others, Phillip Hoose (author) presents the first in-depth account of an important yet largely unknown civil rights figure, skillfully weaving her dramatic story into the fabric of the historic Montgomery bus boycott and court case that would change the course of American history.
