For her birthday today, people across social media — including the Obamas — wished her well.
For her 109th birthday last year, she celebrated with the Harlem Globetrotters.
McLaurin was born in 1909 in South Carolina and worked as a seamstress for most of her life. The D.C. resident has been a widow for more than 70 years.
The day she went to the White House, she was nothing short of amazed.
“I tell you, I am so happy,” she said at the time, looking at the Obamas. “A black president, yay, and his black wife.”
When she shook her hips, Barack Obama took note.
“She’s dancing,” he said with a laugh. “So what’s the secret to still dancing at 106?”
McLaurin’s answer? She just showed off more of her dance moves.
