"Same Kind of Different as Me"

by Ron Hall and Denver Moore, with Lynn Vincent

book

When homeless drifter Denver Moore met visionary advocate Debbie Hall in 1998, little did Ron Hall realize that his life would change forever.
The real-life characters become the cast of players in Mississippi State's 2015 Maroon Edition Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together.
"This is a groundbreaking, innovative book that I believe will challenge our students. We hope that all of next fall's incoming freshman class will read the book before the semester begins," said MSU President Mark E. Keenum. "We also encourage participation in the many related activities planned during the school year."
Co-authors Moore and Ron Hall were assisted by best-selling writer Lynn Vincent in chronicling their unlikely friendship.
Ron Hall will be the keynote speaker at the 2015 Freshman Convocation on August 18, 2015 at 5:30 in Humphrey Coliseum.
