A video getting viral circulation today certainly isn't new. But it is a fun flashback. I remember watching it a few years ago -- and an easy search of YouTube shows a version from 2009 that has over 20,000 views.
Here's that version:
Here is how the video is getting play today:
A 20-year-old video clip of Barack Obama hit YouTube on Thursday. The future president appeared on a televised “Black History Minutes” segment in 1991, the same year he graduated from Harvard law school.
The early video, originally broadcast by TBS as a public service announcement, may have been Obama’s first-ever appearance on national television.
The president made this video some five years before running for a state Senate seat in Illinois. The script, which he either memorized or read from a teleprompter, concerned the accomplishments of Charles Hamilton Houston, the African-American lawyer who taught Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
