Political differences aside, we can all agree it must be an honor to meet the President and First Lady at the White House. And I’m sure we can understand how much it must mean for a 106-year-old black woman, who must have experienced quite a bit in her lifetime, to meet the first black president and first lady during Black History Month. She was so overcome with joy, she danced for them, and I thought it was adorable.
“I didn’t think I’d live to see a black president,” she said, according to NBC Washington.
Three years later, that dream has come true for Ms McLaurin.
She was invited to the White House for 2016’s Black History Month celebrations, where she met Mr Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
