Default Obama Flashback: Video surfaces of Obama reciting "Black History Minute" in 1991

Is this the same guy? He sounds different.



Barack Obama 1991 TBS Black History Minute - YouTube#!

Quote:
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.

He doesn't have the slight upper-midwestern accent he has now, that's about the only difference. His voice sounds a little deeper but mic placement and eq can do that to anyone.

It sounds like a 20 year old version of Obama to me.

What's the point of this? He's credited as Barack Obama. Sort of a cool clip. He hadn't had his second stint in Chicago at that point so perhaps the midwestern twang hadn't rubbed off yet. More of a Brookline standardized accent.

And I just learned how to properly use 'cadre' in a sentence. Thanks Black History Moment.

He sounds better here, yes! deeper voice and somehow this gives him an honorable veneer.

Hmm.....voice changed this much, and yet he isn't an old fart, yet. Why? how?

Anything psychological or Spiritual, about it?

Maybe he sold his soul to become president and is guiltier and smoking more now, than then, with inner turmoil. Conscience issues can do that to all of us.

Hey may have been a finer soul when he made this vid.
