Zebra Friends


Katani Sumner and Sara Hunter stomp through the minefields of racial sensitivity to ask each other the questions only best friends can: "Why do white people eat green bean casserole? Why do black movie audiences talk to the screen?" Educator and Singer/Songwriter Katani grew up in Boston. Sara spent her childhood in a woodsy suburb far from the city.
