    Zebra Friends Special Edition: What's Going On?

    Katani and Sara dive deep into turbulent times to examine causes, solutions, and why Zebra Friendship is more important now than ever.  Sara wonders, “What can I do?”. Katani answers, “Fight against those powers that are trying to tell you that it’s us and them. Can we be great and move forward together? And not separate? That’s my goal. United. United States, United Humans, United People of America.  But acknowledge that being Black in America is a health hazard.”

Good stuff

Another smart and provocative discussion. Have read Caste and endorse Sara’s recommendation. Will try Le Bureau. Love the interaction and easy conversation.

Exactly What We Need Right Now!

A relaxed podcast that addresses a serious and urgent subject in an accessible and fun way. Perfect for curious white folks who don’t yet have many Black friends (or curious Black folks who don’t yet have many white friends). Sara and Katani are so kind and generous with each other, you’ll wish you were there with them. Short and sweet episodes could be longer! Can’t get enough!

Love Zebra Friends!

This podcast is like sitting with a group of friends and having a cozy conversation about the topics that matter. Thank you, Katani and Sara!
