Can you hear racism and intolerance? Jennifer Stoever can when she listens to the “sonic color line” — a way to hear racial division, how it’s reinforced and maintained, by whom and why, and at what cost. 

Stoever teaches at Binghamton University, but she grew up in Southern California, in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in America. She was an early hip hop fan and it was when she was going to concerts and clubs that she first started noticing the sonic color line.
