In the last few months, with the social upheaval following the killing of George Floyd and ensuing Black Live Matter protests, the lack of representation in casting for characters of color in voice over has been highly scrutinized. This is not a new topic by any means, but with high-profile white actors actually stepping down from roles portraying people of color, the industry is now having a really hard look in the mirror.
This issue brings up a number of questions and is not anywhere near being settled. We have a couple articles to share regarding this industry quandary and we hope find them to be worthwhile reads to contemplate.
