I’m here to celebrate Black History

Virginia McLaurin, at 106, danced with Barak and Michelle Obama at the White House.

This video has been seen by most of you on facebook, I’m sure.

It is so definitely, though, about aging with vibrancy, beauty, tears, and grace that we are posting it here as well.

It is worth watching again:  Virginia McLaurin.

  2. Yes. Her joy is ebullient!
    As is her statement, “I thought I would never live to get in the White House . . . I am so happy! . . . A black President . . . A black wife.”


  3. Dance on sister!


    1. Ohhhhh, yes! Dance on and on!
