Author at Clinton School

Posted By on Sun, May 9, 2010 at 7:25 AM

Dean Skip Rutherford calls attention to a speaker at 6 p.m. Monday at the Clinton School of Public Service.

Author Wes Moore will discuss his book, "The Other Wes Moore," the story of two boys with the same name from the same inner-city Baltimore neighborhood and their drastically different lives. The author became the first African-American Rhodes Scholar ever from Johns Hopkins University while the other Wes Moore served a life sentence in prison after being convicted of murder. The author has served as an Army Officer in Afghanistan and worked as a Special Assistant to Secretary Condoleezza Rice at the State Department as a White House Fellow.
