SHOUT-OUT: Betty Ann Hoehn | "Corinne and Me, an Unlikely Friendship"

Through the racial turmoil in the 1960’s, one child finds an unbreakable bond that gives her the courage to face the challenges of life.

Betty Ann Hoehn’s memoir reaches back to a time when racial issues determined daily activities for the majority of Americans.  Her story captures the segregation that many experienced during that time and touches the heart through the story of one downtrodden, but courageous and loving woman who reached across racial lines to help a child and provide the unshakeable love and friendship that would take that child through the most difficult time in her life.

Submitted by the author. Especially timely in light of recent talks of public school resegregation.
