#‎VintagePBO‬: Barack Obama - February 6, 1990 -The New York Times‪ #‎OTD‬

On this date in 1990, the young Mr. Obama from ‪#‎Hawaii‬ was featured in the NYT as the ‪‎first‬ African American to head The Harvard Law Review. (Pay wall: http://nyti.ms/206mdss)

I’ve often thought that Obama could have built his entire legal/academic career based on this singular prestigious honor. It’s an astounding achievement for a black intellectual - and future community activist - navigating the Ivy League system, especially during the Reagan/Bush years.

He would have been revered for life (along w/ his lovely family) in the black publications of Ebony, Essence, and Jet Magazine, and maybe People during ‪#‎BlackHistoryMonth‬. On its own, this ‘first’ would have ensured that Obama held a special place in black history. 

Little did we know, it was only the beginning. #BlackHistoryMonth 2016
