Archibong is hoping the former first lady takes a picture with Hardy “to capture this monumental moment.”
Hardy was born on a plantation in Junction City in 1908. The granddaughter of a slave, Hardy moved to Atlanta in 1939 and then DeKalb County in 1966 to be with her daughter and care for her grandchildren.
Hardy lives in Kirkwood with her granddaughter.
“I first met Ms. Hardy in 2017 at the Annual Living Legends Cookout held in Kirkwood,” Archibong said. “Her journey from being born on a plantation to living to see the first African American become president of the United States is inspirational.”
