Racism is present in all types of employment, including acting. Here is an acting guide specifically for people who are nonwhite. The authors’ practical advice focuses on stage audition skills but can easily be applied to screen acting. They provide guidance on situations where actors may be asked to read for roles that rely on racial stereotypes, and explain which common techniques for actors may be harmful for people of color. “Everyone involved in the performing arts, from professors to casting directors to actors to students, especially those just starting out, should read this eye-opening work.” ~ Library Journal
