Obama Video from 1991 Harvard Protest

Buzzfeed released a video of Barack Obama speaking in 1991 on behalf of Harvard Law professor Derrick Bell. Professor Bell had announced that he would take a leave of absence to protest Harvard’s decision not to grant tenure to a black woman professor, Regina Austin.

This apparently is the mysterious video that Andrew Breitbart referred to before he died. Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak just announced, “Over the course of the day, Breitbart.com will be releasing additional footage that has been hidden by Obama’s allies in the mainstream media and academia. . . . The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News’ Hannity.”
