Virginia McLaurin, a 106-year-old black woman, did what would have seemed impossible when she was born; she visited the White House and met the first ever black president.
It was an incredible moment, McLaurin and the Obamas talked, laughed and they even danced. Unbelievable for anyone of that age.
But most telling was one comment from McLaurin: “I thought I would never live to get in the White House.”
If this video doesn’t make you smile the nothing ever will.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
