The Mindset List

The Mindset List was created at Beloit College in 1998 to reflect the world view of entering first year students. It started with the members of the class of 2002, born in 1980. Check out this year's list and past years to see how the world has changed! http://www.beloit.edu/mindset/

Common Reader 2015: The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates

“The chilling truth is that his story could have been mine. The tragedy is that my story could have been his.” 

                                                            -Wes Moore, pg. xi

 

"It takes a village to raise a child," goes the African proverb. This book is a cautionary tale of what happens when the village is ill equipped to do so. The author, a Rhodes scholar and investment banker, intercuts his life story with that of another young man with the same name. Both were born around the same time in the same Baltimore neighborhood; both were fatherless; both suffered under the weight of poverty, drugs and crime. The other Wes Moore, however, will spend the rest of his life inside a prison cell for murder.
