1990: Obama - a law student - speaks at Derrick Bell l rally

Inexplicably there are some people who believe that Barack Obama can't speak without a teleprompter.  Anyone who watches on of his press conferences knows it is not true.  But there could little evidence more dramatic that watching Barack Obama, a 29 year old law student, speaking powerfully and without notes at a 1990 rally for Derrick Bell.  In a protest against the lack of minority faculty, Bell did the unthinkable: gave up a tenured job at Harvard Law School. - GWC
