Energetic 106-year-old woman busts a move at White House

- Virginia McLaurin, a 106-year-old woman, was so excited when she met President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle that she busted out some dance moves with the two during her visit to the White House on Sunday, February 21.



McLaurin said she was very happy to meet US’ first black president and his “black” wife, all while holding Obama and Michelle’s hands. The bubbly lady said, “I’m here to celebrate black history.” McLaurin, who is also black, was born in 1909 in South Carolina.

McLaurin filed a White House petition in 2014 saying she would like to meet Obama and his family. She repeated her request in a YouTube video uploaded in December, 2014. Other videos on the channel feature problems with McLaurin’s apartment in Washington. A community Facebook page was set up to gather donations for McLaurin.
