About the Book
Two kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the book's writer, sets out to answer this profound question and tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world.
The music man
In an Ohio State classroom, President Michael V. Drake shared his love of music to teach first-year students about the Civil Rights era. During spring semester, he teamed up with Moritz College of Law Dean Alan Michaels to teach a new course, “The Civil Rights Movement and the Supreme Court." Artists like Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin and Chuck Berry are the background music for a teaching jam session that flows naturally for Drake.
