Wes Moore, Author of The Other Wes Moore

Wes Moore is a youth advo­cate, Army com­bat vet­eran, social entrepreneur, and host of Beyond Belief on the Oprah Winfrey Network.  His first book The Other Wes Moore became an instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Born in 1978, Wes and his sisters were raised by their widowed mother.  Despite early academic and behavioral struggles, he graduated Phi Theta Kappa in 1998 as a com­mis­sioned offi­cer from Val­ley Forge Mil­i­tary Col­lege, and Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hop­kins Uni­ver­sity in 2001, where he also played football and earned a bachelor’s degree in Inter­na­tional Rela­tions.  He then became a Rhodes Scholar, studying Inter­na­tional Rela­tions at Oxford Uni­ver­sity. After his studies, Wes, a paratrooper and Cap­tain in the United States Army, served a com­bat tour of duty in Afghanistan with the 1st Brigade of the 82nd Air­borne Divi­sion.  Wes then served as a White House fellow to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.  He serves on the board of the Iraq Afghanistan Vet­er­ans of Amer­ica (IAVA), The Johns Hopkins University, and founded an orga­ni­za­tion called STAND! that works with Bal­ti­more youth involved in the crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem. Wes is committed to helping the parents, teachers, mentors, and advocates who serve our nations youth.  A portion of all book proceeds for “The Other Wes Moore” are being donated to City Year and the US Dream Academy.
