Virginia McLaurin’s excitement when she saw President Barack Obama in person for the first time can best be encapsulated in one word.


And with a shimmy and a shake, the 106-year-old woman opened her arms wide and gave the Leader of the Free World, a Black man, a huge hug.

McLaurin beamed with pride as she gazed upon his face and he held her hands in his. When he smiled and said, “You want to say hi to Michelle?” Her smile got even wider and she let out a loud, “Yeaaaaa!”

Then the dialogue went a little something like this:

“I never thought I would live to get into the White House,” McLaurin said as she looked back and forth between POTUS and the First Lady. “And I tell you, I am so happy.”

After the First Couple assured McLaurin—here on out, she will be referred to as Ms. Virginia—that they were happy to have her, she said in disbelief, “A Black president.”

Michelle responded, “Look at him, right there.”

Then Ms. Virginia got in her sister-girl stance, and said, “A Black wife.”

“That’s me!” Michelle responded.

And what did Ms. Virginia say in response?”


Black History Month has just reached peak Blackness. We love you, Ms. Virginia!

  1. It was such a blessing that the Lord allowed Ms. Virginia to live to see something that no one ever thought would be, not in this life time. Ms. Virginia you made history, “You Go Girl”!!! I wish I could meet the President and First Lady. This just bring tears to your eyes to see something so precious. Thank you BAW!!!

  2. Beautiful story. I saw them this morning and it just made me smile and think about my grandparents and how they would have loved to see this. What is even better is how any negative thoughts or comments are just not worthy of a reaction.

  3. Awww – Lord, to have to say what is so obvious – she’s 106 and lived through a lot of pain and suffering because of those who have oppressed us – so happy that she had this experience

    • Yawwnnn. What else is new with you Peter? Fool. Typical of your trash and nonsense. If you do not like the story on this site, why do you come in here day after day? Sound like you are jealous of President Obama and have a fear President Obama is going to be view better than white Presidents. That is clear that is your issue with President Obama.
