At 106-years-old, Virginia McLaurin probably doesn’t know what it means to be a trending topic on social media. But after her visit to the White House, and the video going viral, she definitely became one.

McLaurin visited the White House as part of their Black History Month celebration and she was ready to ‘cut a rug’.

McLaurin had dancing on her mind, and couldn’t believe she was meeting the president and the first lady.

As McLaurin rushed into the White House dancing, the President tried to slow her down, but she wasn’t having it.

“And I tell you, I am so happy,” she said. “A black president. A black wife. And I’m here to celebrate black history. That’s what I’m here for.”

Seriously, can we be so lucky to live to 106 and be like Virginia?

    “A black president a black wife” God bless her sweet soul.

    106 and STILL with her mind and body that is amazing.

  • The 106 year old Sister is truly filled with glory. She has seen so much like Jim Crow, the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the rise of the first black President, and existence of the first black First Lady. Her life has been long and her lessons are permanently inspirational. She is full of life and vitality. Her energy is very powerful. We honor her not just because she is a great human being. We honor her, because she teaches all of us that regardless of our age, we ought live in this life to bless others and to promote the great ideals that our ancestors fought for (which is about economic justice, racial justice, and an end to oppression in all of its dimensions). Sister Virginia McLaurin is the total representation of courage, longevity, and she is filled with so much love.

    God Bless Her.

    • Thank you Sister. I wish that she could read it too. :) She deserves great praise.

    Oh my goodness, this made my day. I am nowhere near as old as this lovely woman, and I feel exactly the same. After living through all she has been through, I certainly would be dancing too if I lived long enough to survive Jim Crow AND to meet the first Black President and First Lady of America. For a Black person born one generation removed from slavery, that is monumental.
