Acclaimed Author

Wes Moore

Acclaimed author and youth advocate, Wes Moore, is a veteran, Rhodes Scholar, and the founder of BridgeEDU, an innovative college platform. His first book, 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 after serving in the prestigious 82nd Airborne Division of the US Army. The other is currently serving a life sentence for the killing of a police officer during an armed robbery. Burning with curiosity as to why he and the other Wes were so radically different, Moore investigated the man with the same name. The result was an instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller that describes the important mentors and support networks who refused to let Wes fall into crime and drugs and the fine line between success and failure in our communities.

Moore has been featured by USA Today, Time Magazine, People Magazine, Meet the Press, The Colbert Report, MSNBC, and NPR, among many other media outlets. He is also the host of Beyond Belief on the Oprah Winfrey Network, and the executive producer and host of PBS’s Coming Back with Wes Moore, which focuses on the re-integration of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their return home.  We are thrilled to hear about the transformative power of education and mentorship from such an inspirational speaker.
