Acclaimed author Wes Moore is a combat Army veteran, Rhodes Scholar and the founder of BridgeEDU. He has been an NBC news correspondent, hosted his own show on PBS and has been featured by USA Today, Time Magazine, People Magazine, Meet the Press, The Colbert Report, MSNBC and NPR.
Moore’s first book, and the topic for his lecture, The Other Wes Moore, tells the tale of two kids with the same name living in the same decaying city. One grew up to be a Rhodes Scholar and White House Fellow under Condoleezza Rice. The other is currently serving a life sentence for the killing of a police officer during an armed robbery. Moore will share his insights and stories of the people and networks that refused to let him fall into crime and drugs.
