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.
As part of The Great Quad Cities Listen, White was interviewed at the studios of WVIK by her longtime friend the Rev. Dwight Ford, who also serves as a Well Suited mentor. White shares why she created the group, what the boys—and men—get out of the interactions, and the lasting legacy that Well Suited is designed to sustain.
