Meeting the President is a dream for many people, but for this 106 year old lady, it means more than most as you’ll see from her reaction.
A lot has happened in 100 years, cars have become the norm, people are glued to cell phones and computers, but more than any of that, the black rights movement has changed completely. When 106 year old Virginia McLaurin was born in 1909 in South Carolina the thought of a black president was the furthest thought from anyones mind. As she met with Barak Obama and his wife Michele, she told them that she was there to celebrate black history. Virginia, who is also black couldn’t have been more excited to meet the couple, and when you think of all the changes she has seen throughout her life, it really is no surprise.
She told Mr Obama that she was so pleased to meet the “black president and his black wife” that she held hands with Michelle and started dancing. It really is one of the sweetest videos that we have ever seen.
