Wes Moore

The outrage surrounding Dr. Ben Carson’s recent WTF moment, wherein he compared gay marriage to bestiality and pedophilia on Fox News, left Johns Hopkins’s School of Medicine and School of Education without a commencement speaker.

The School of Education solved the problem by inviting Baltimore native, Hopkins alum, TV host, best-selling author, and all-around uplifting personality Wes Moore to speak instead. He’s also “a youth advocate, entrepreneur, Army combat veteran, and Rhodes Scholar.”

Expect lots of broadly accessible words of inspiration and no references to “God’s definition of marriage.”
