WES MOORE FOR GOVERNOR OF MARYLAND
Wes Moore, a combat veteran, bestselling author, small business owner, Rhodes Scholar and former CEO of one of the nation’s largest anti-poverty organizations, has devoted his life’s work to a basic principle: no matter your start in life, you deserve an equal opportunity to succeed – a job you can raise a family on, a future you can look forward to.
Wes was born in Takoma Park, Maryland, to Joy and Westley Moore. When Wes was just three years old, his father died of a rare, but treatable virus. His father’s untimely death created instability in young Wes’ life, causing his mom to move the family to the Bronx, where Wes’ grandparents lived.
The family returned to Maryland when Wes was 14 when Wes’ mom found a job in Baltimore – the first job that paid her benefits.
“INSIDE SPORTS” FOUNDER HAROLD BELL
Harold Bell was the first African American to host and produce his own Sports Talk Radio show, “Inside Sports,” in Washington, D.C. from 1972 through the 1990s. On his “Inside Sports” radio show he interviewed some of the most famous athletes in pro sports.
In 1975, Bell interviewed Muhammed Ali after he knocked out George Foreman in Zaire, Africa, on NBC affiliate WRC-TV 4, in Washington, D.C. This made him the first African American to host and produce his own television sports special in prime time.
His interviews and friendship with Ali and Red Auerbach put his “Inside Sports” talk show on the map. Bell also interviewed national sports figures like Jim Brown, Spencer Haywood, Harry Edwards, Sonny Hill, Don King, Bighouse Gaines and John Chaney, just to name a few. These relationships became valuable when Bell was advocating for NFL All-Pro Willie Wood and NBA pioneer Earl Lloyd to be inducted into their respective Halls of Fame after they were “Blackballed” by their leagues.
Today, Bell has his own weekly program, “Speak the Truth” Zoom Show every Sunday and Inside Sports Detoxx video show on YouTube. In addition, he is a popular blogger for Black Men in America.com.
