Author of “The Other Wes Moore” — a book about two African-American young men with the same name living in the same decaying city. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader. The other is serving a life sentence in prison for felony murder. This is the story of two boys and the journey of a generation.

Come hear Wes Moore’s inspiring story and advice to other young men.
