The Other Wes Moore and Oprah

Oprah alert! Author Wes Moore will be on the Oprah Winfrey Show today speaking about his new book, The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates.

Bringing issues of identity, diversity, education and service to new light in a unique and intriguing way, the book tells the story of two kids with the same name living in the same decaying city. One went on to be a Rhodes Scholar, a decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow and business leader.  The other is serving a life sentence in prison.

Additionally, be sure to read Mr. Moore’s original piece, A Message to Educators, on the RHI Magazine blog, in which he addresses the needs of American school systems saying: “I am living proof that a support system of family, mentors and educators is critical for success and as such, have the most tremendous respect for those of you who give tirelessly of yourselves to improve the future of a child.”

Mr. Moore will be speaking at the 2011 First-Year Experience conference next February, so mark your calendars! You won’t want to miss it.
