*Before He Was Prez* Clip Emerges Of Harvard Student Barack Obama Doing ''Black History Minutes'' Commercial 20 Years Ago (VIDEO)

A lot has changed in this country since 1991. We've had several different military conflicts, an unpredictable economy that has become the focus of many citizens, and the nation elected it's very first African-American President.

That man that was elected was of course Barack Obama and while we've become use to seeing him speak on television, a clip has been unearthed that could possibly depict his first time talking to the nation.

The clip is from 1991 and was part of TBS's ''Black History Minutes'' series.

In the video, Obama praises African-American lawyer Charles Hamilton Houston for masterminding the strategy that eventually led to the Brown v. Board of Education decision.

“The distinguished lawyer Charles Hamilton Houston was born in 1895, eight months before the Supreme Court’s ‘separate but equal’ ruling in Plessy vs. Ferguson. He spent his career fighting to overturn that decision,”
Obama stated. “As director of the NAACP legal campaign, Houston masterminded the strategy that eventually led to the historic decision of Brown vs. Board of Education.”

Obama was 29 years old at the time and was editor for Harvard Law Review.
