This is a very sad story, but one which highlights an inspiring story.
Josephine “Ann” Harris died an hour or two after Barack Obama visited her restaurant, for breakfast, in West Akron, Ohio.
But the tragedy brings forward the story of a wonderful woman who had (what we would call) a mixed race family, rather like Obama, whose grandmother (as he pointed out to Ann Harris) was also called “Ann”. She built up a legendary restaurant and was a great Obama fan. Her hero hugged her just a few hours before she was taken ill and passed away.
An inspiring lady…Tweet
