Video: Did Michelle Obama Occupy Dean's office at Harvard?

Very interesting and relevant find from J. Christian Adams at Pajamas Media (h/t Elizabeth), on two levels. First, back in the late 80's / early 90's, there was a racially charged fight at Harvard centered around forcing the University to hire more minority faculty. None other than Prof. Derrick Bell was the driving force behind it. We already know that Barack Obama embraced Bell but now, thanks to Adams, we learn that Michelle Robinson (Obama) was as well.

Via PJM:
A treasure trove of information is coming out regarding Barack Obama’s time in college.  Over at the Breitbart sites, we are learning how Obama inserted himself into a fight to implement hiring on the basis of race at Harvard Law School.  The Obama tapes also seem to show the other Obama – Michelle – occupying the Harvard Law School dean’s office.  The occupiers were agitating for the race-based hiring of Harvard law professors.

The racialist fight at Harvard Law from 1988 to 1991 swirls around Professor Derrick Bell.  As detailed over at Big Government, Professor Bell was a role model to law student Barack Obama.  But he also openly advocated for a variety of racialist views wholly outside the American mainstream.  Some of them are outright crazy.  He deliberately used his position as a professor to teach racially charged theories of structural oppression by whites.  Obama, nevertheless, now famously urged us “to open up our hearts and minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.”
In his article, Adams explains how he came in possession of the video, which can be viewed HERE.  Though he's not willing to say it's definitely Michelle who can be seen in the bottom right of the video about 10 seconds in, "occupying the Dean's office," he sounds more than overwhelmingly convinced based on the fact that the betamax video he viewed first hand is much sharper than the one found at the link.

If you watch the entire news report, you'll see another familiar face - Derrick Bell. Does this mean both Barack and Michelle opened their "hearts" and "minds" to the teachings of Bell?

It would appear so.
