Talk about a Black History Moment!!!


Virginia McLaurin, age 106, says she waited all her life to see an African-American in the White House. So, when she finally got a chance to meet President Obama, she couldn’t contain her excitement as she danced with the President and First Lady.

Mrs. Virginia was on a mission to meet the President of the United States and began a media campaign in 2014 with a YouTube video where she explained:   “I didn’t think I’d ever live to see a colored president. I am so happy. I pray for you every day of my life.”
