20-year-old video of law student Barack Obama hits YouTube

A 20-year-old public service announcement that hit YouTube yesterday is drawing a lot of attention because of the speaker: then Harvard Law Review editor Barack Obama.

The young Obama narrated a “Black History Minutes” PSA which aired on television back in 1991. In the minute-long video, Obama recognizes the life of lawyer Charles Hamilton Houston who, Obama says, “masterminded the strategy that eventually lead to the historic decision of Brown v. Board of Education, which reversed the Supreme Court’s decision on ‘separate but equal.’”
