Alexander Hamilton

Last year, a friend of mine sent me a link to a video from the White House Poetry Jam  held in May of 2009. The video was of a performer named Lin–Michael Miranda performing “The Alexander Hamilton Mixtape.” The way Mr. Miranda tells Mr. Hamilton’s story is unlike anything I’ve ever head before. It’s a reminder of what people can accomplish, no matter their background or obstacles they face.

As Independence Day approaches, this video is worth a watch.
