Newly discovered footage recently came online of Prince advocating better pay for teachers when he was 11 years old.
Production manager Matt Liddy found the rare film – filmed in 1970 – in the archive room of the WCCO television network in Minneapolis, which was searching the archives to better put into context the teachers’ strike that took place there earlier this year.
According to Stereogum, as soon as Liddy came across the film, “she immediately went out to the newsroom and started showing people and saying, ‘I’m not going to say who I think this is, but who it is do you think this?
WCCO then brought in a specialist to restore the sound from the film, and traced a local historian and childhood friend to Prince’s to confirm that the boy in the film was Prince.
The video shows a young Prince being interviewed about the teachers’ strike in Minneapolis that took place in 1970. “I think they should also get a better education because, um, and I think they should get more money because they work. extra working hours for us and all that stuff, “he says.
