Virginia McLaurin

Grandma Virginia was visited by members of the exhibition basketball troupe on Tuesday at the Roots Public Charter School in Washington D.C., where McLaurin volunteers as a foster grandma for the children. Players Moose Weekes and Zeus McClurkin danced for McLaurin and spoke to the children about the importance of education.

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