The Other Wes Moore

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Wes Moore discusses sharing the same name with a man from the same neighborhood he grew up in who went on to have a very different life. In The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates, he describes discovering the other Wes Moore, now a convicted murderer serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
