Dreams came true for 106-year-old Virginia McLaurin when she finally got to visit the White House and meet the Obamas. The sprightly woman was so overcome with joy that she couldn’t help but dance as she posed for a picture and shared with President Obama and the First Lady that she was there to celebrate Black History Month.
McLaurin exclaims: “I thought I would never live to get in the White House and I tell you, I am so happy. A black president, a black wife, yes! And, I am here to celebrate Black history, that’s what I’m here for!”
Happy Black History Month, Virginia McLaurin! We’re happy you got to fulfill your dream.
