David C. Banks of the Eagle Academy Foundation introduces Wes Moore, author of the new book THE OTHER WES MOORE at the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBOC) Gathering of Leaders in Washington, DC on April 22, 2010.

The speech was given prior to a screening at the Motion Picture Association of America theater of scenes from the work-in-progress documentary AN AMERICAN PROMISE. Produced and directed by Michele Stephenson and Joe Brewster, AN AMERICAN PROMISE is a unique longitudinal look at the education of two African American boys from kindergarten through high school graduation.

Here, Wes talks about the mission of COSEBOC: to educate all boys and young men and its importance to him in light of his experiences growing up.
