Watch: 106-year-old woman dances with the Obamas in White House
cancel

Virginia McLaurin happens to be almost 107 years old. But that did not matter last week when the centenarian steppedinto the White House to meet President Obama and the first lady.

McLaurin danced with sheer and utter joy, shaking her hips like a 16-year-old and flashing a smile as bright as the camera flashes going off all around her.

“I thought I would never live to get in the White House,” said McLaurin, who was born in 1909 in South Carolina, worked as a seamstress for most of her life and has been a widow for more than 70 years.

But her amazement went beyond merely making it inside the hallowed building. She was particularly bowled over to be meeting America’s first African American president.

“I tell you, I am so happy,” she said, looking up at Obama before turning to the first lady. “A black president, yay, and his black wife.”

McLaurin said she was there to celebrate Black History Month.
