Obama Poses With Young Rosa Parks Relative

President Obama had another cute photo-op with a child Wednesday when he spoke at the dedication of the new Rosa Parks statue on Capitol Hill.

While there, he met some of Parks' relatives including 3-year-old Terrell Anderson Jr. of Detroit. When he was picked up, Anderson Jr. couldn't resist touching the president's head.

The image reminds us of 5-year-old Jacob Philadelphia of Columbia, Md., who, in 2009, visited the Oval Office and asked Obama if he could touch the president's hair to see if it felt like his own.
