This 106-year-old woman danced with joy when she met President Obama

When Virginia McLaurin was born in 1909 in South Carolina, segregation was law in the state and women still did not have the right to vote.106-year-old McLaurin never thought she, or a black president for that matter, would make it to the White House. But after President Obama's election, she had her sights set on meeting the first black president.And this weekend, her dreams became reality.She was so overjoyed that she could not stop her feet from dancing when she met President Obama and the First Lady as part of Black History Month celebrations. The White House posted a video of the meeting to their Facebook page on Sunday.
