This was at Castro Valley High School, in California, back in 1990. Rachel Maddow, complete with Birkenstocks, makes a speech as a teen that rivals any adult speech I’ve heard.
Amazing then, amazing now:
The gutsy 17 year old Rachel Maddow gives a daring speech at her high school commencement.
“Close mindedness” is not an easy thing to eradicate, is it Rach…?
“Make them change.”
“I warn the rest of this community, here we come.”
She didn’t disappoint.
