Here is a video clip of US President Obama from February 1991 in which he narrates a TBS ode to Charles Hamilton Houston during Black History Month. At 29, Obama had just been elected the first black president of the Harvard Law review. As accomplished as he was at the time, he appears more halting and less comfortable using a teleprompter on camera in this clip than today. It shows you how far President Obama has come. A nice little piece of history
