Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Series Keynote. Wes Moore is a combat veteran, Rhodes Scholar, White House fellow and the author of two books: "The Other Wes Moore" and "The Work: My Search for a Life That Matters."

New date! Rescheduled from January 25.

Wes Moore speaks about how we find the most value in work based in service, selflessness and risk taking. It is the subject of his latest book, The Work: My Search for a Life That Matters, which explores the meaning of success in a volatile, difficult and seemingly anchorless world.

His first book, The Other Wes Moore, is a story of the mentorship and support networks that refused to let him fall into crime and drugs. He also produced the three-part PBS series, Coming Back with Wes Moore, which tells the story of soldiers attempting to reintegrate back into society after returning from war.
