    From TheGrio.com:

    There’s lots of buzz these days about author Wes Moore. His new book, The Other Wes Moore, has reached the top 10 of the New York Times best-seller list. Meanwhile, he’s appeared on Oprah, NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS Sunday Morning, NPR and beyond.

    Moore’s true-life tome examines the lives of two boys in Baltimore with the same name. One grows up to become the first African-American Rhodes Scholar at Johns Hopkins University, a White House Fellow, and a decorated Army combat veteran in Afghanistan. The other is currently serving a life sentence in prison after being convicted of murdering an off-duty police officer.
