Episode 1: You Sound White

January 30, 2017

During my first semester at Towson University, I experienced two drastically different situations, each one the result of disparate understandings of who I was, and each one related to my race. The first, involves someone mistaking me for being white based solely on the cadence and pitch of my voice. The other, involves something profoundly different.
