About the Session
Two Baltimore boys named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew in similar neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow, social entrepreneur and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Join Wes Moore, New York Times best-selling author and CEO at Robin Hood, one of the largest anti-poverty organizations in the country, to explore the fine line between success and failure in our communities and in ourselves through the power of personal responsibility and its role in making positive choices.
