The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates Overview

The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates is a work of nonfiction about two men from the same neighborhood with the same name. One man went on to success, while the other ended up in prison for a jewelry store heist during which an off-duty police officer was killed. The author of the book is the man who went on to become successful. He decided to research the life of the “other” Wes Moore to see why the two men’s paths veered so far from each other. The answer was complicated. Ultimately, the author shows that for someone to be successful they need opportunities presented to them, the moral groundwork to make choices, and a support system to be there if they fail.
