Tracy White founded Well Suited QC, a mentorship program that brings together African-American boys and teenagers from disadvantaged neighborhoods in the Quad Cities with African-American men. The mentors share not only advice, but hope: many of the men found themselves in difficult life situations in their childhoods, just like the boys in the group.
Carolyn Martin interviews artists from all different genres and all over the Quad Cities about their work.
The Great Quad Cities Listen is an attempt to collect and share our diverse stories. By doing so, we hope to build connections and create a more compassionate Quad Cities.
