ZEBRA FRIENDS: FINDINGTHE JOY IN BLACK AND WHITE. Katani Sumner and Sara Hunter stomp through the minefields of racial sensitivity to ask each other the questions only best friends can: "Why are white funerals so dismal? Why do black movie audiences yell at the screen? Why in the world do white people green bean casserole?" Legendary House of Blues Gospel host Katani grew up in Boston. Sara spent her childhood in a woodsy suburb far from the city. Their worlds collided on the soccer sidelines of their kids' elementary school. Through honesty, humor, and shared experiences they have learned the joys of Zebra Friendship. Their mission: integration in the best way possible: friend by friend. Join the growing circle of Zebra Friends. Learn how on this month's podcast. It's time for real conversation in a safe space.

Announcing Sara's New Book!

Stories from Home: Dover Days chronicles a small town childhood of not-so-long-ago. Set in the author’s beloved hometown of Dover, Massachusetts, these poignant reminiscences will strike a familiar chord with all who hold their childhood home deep in their hearts.

Available by order at your favorite bookstore,,,


Stories from Home Dover Days by Sara Hoagland Hunter ($17.95) are delightful, funny, and comforting reminiscences from Hunter's childhood days in the 1950s and '60's in Dover Massachusetts. They made me laugh and reflect on my own childhood memories. Times were simpler then, right? This is the perfect gift for those who grew up then and want to give those who grew up then and want to give younger loved ones a taste of life back in the day. Read one story a night before bedtime. Sweet dreams!
