Ron Hall's Story

Ron Hall's Story

Denver Moore was a dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery – in the 1960s. Ron Hall was a successful art gallery owner who had a healthy bank account but emotionally was running on empty. Although worlds apart, their destiny collided when Ron’s wife Debbie insisted that Ron join her in serving food at a local homeless shelter. As soon as she met Denver there, she had a vision that he would change the city and that her husband must befriend him. Sadly, she didn’t live to see the incredible result of the unlikely friendship she initiated.

Their story, immortalized in the New York Times best-selling book, Same Kind of Different As Me, inspires people to take off their racial, social, and economic blinders in order to find common ground. Today, the unstoppable duo has raised both funds for and awareness of the plight of the homeless.
