African actors finding work

It's extremely difficult for African actors who have moved to AMERICA to find work. Even when casting directors insist that. The accent is not an issue, it still is a big issue.

Stella - have you checked out the "Mastering the American Accent" webinar Jon Sperry taught for us? It's in our Education section. He's worked with everyone including Harvey Keitel and Russell Crowe.
