Hidden Conversations

Hidden Conversations, hosted by Dr. LaDrina Wilson founder of IMAN Consulting, is a podcast exploring the issues that face our local Black community. Join Dr. Wilson as she discusses the same issues of race and equity that we hear about in the news every day, but with testimonies from experts based right here in the Quad Cities. We strive to help break down the myth that these things only happen somewhere else, by highlighting first hand stories and statistics from Quad Citizens. In so doing, we hope to increase our empathy for those who literally live right next door.
