There are 42 million African-Americans according to the 2010 U.S. Census, and there’s no doubt that number will rise in the 2020 tally.
We stand with our communities of color, and we’re proud to feature talented African-American voice actors who can authentically represent this demographic. A quick casting note: The words “urban” or “street” have frequently been used in casting notices as an equivalent synonym for an African American voice. Like any group, African Americans are not a monolith and not all African American voices are “urban”-sounding. If you’re specifically looking for that “urban” sound, read or dialect to appeal to and sound like a specific regional community, please click here to check out our multicultural talents that specifically perform an “urban” sound or dialect, which is not race-specific.
