UD Honors Program Hosts Wes Moore

Join New York Times best-selling author and youth advocate Wes Moore as he explains that embracing your own personal responsibility and holding yourself accountable for your choices is a quality that makes great transformational leaders.

Raised in a single-parent household, this Baltimore native overcame early struggles to become a Rhodes Scholar, military veteran, and White House fellow. His book The Other Wes Moore compares his story to a man who shares his name, but meets a very different fate.

Following the event, please join us for a book signing in the Gore rotunda.

Sponsored by the Honors Program with support from the Center for Black Culture and the President’s Diversity Initiative.

Wes Moore is as eloquent a speaker as he is a writer. He captured the audience's attention from the outset, moved us with accounts from his own life and the other Wes' life, and inspired us all to become better people.
