Colin Powell at Georgetown Prep

I got the opportunity to photograph Colin Powell during a speech he gave at Georgetown Prep recently. I'm always fascinated by great speakers because um, like, well, I'm not one of them. He spoke for about 40 minutes straight. Every word was interesting and every thought moved seamlessly to the next. He talked mostly about the Civil Rights movement and being deployed in Vietnam while it was taking place but he also answered questions about Wikileaks and the art of diplomacy. Very interesting stuff. But when Powell first came on stage all I think about was Nas telling him to move over.
