More than a decade ago, a man named Wes Moore was convicted of murdering a police officer during a botched robbery. What he didn’t know was that another man with the same name grew up not far from him in Baltimore. The two frequented the same places, had run-ins with the law, and were fatherless. While one Wes Moore will spend the rest of his life behind bars, the other has a successful career as a businessman, motivational speaker, and author.

In the book titled "The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates,” Wes Moore talks about meeting the man with the same name, but a very different life. Moore spoke with Illinois Public Media's Sean Powers shortly before giving a presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 at the University of Illinois’ Alice Campbell Alumni Center as part of the United Way of Champaign County's Pillar Celebration.
