History of six US Presidents - Who Were Black
President Thomas Jefferson.was the 3rd president. He was attacked by a book written by Thomas Hazard in 1867, the title was "THE JOHNNY CAKE PAPERS." It was claimed that Pres. Jefferson's mother was a half-breed Indian squaw and his father was a Virginia mulatto father. It was mentioned that Thomas Jefferson ate slave food and had humble beginnings. Pres. Jefferson burned all of his mother's papers as if he was trying to hide something, her real identity. President Jefferson served two terms as President. President Jefferson has his biography at Monticello Foundation. He was not without scandal throughout his life, including a lifelong mistress. The Monticello Foundations claims that some opponents published and tried to blacken Pres. Jefferson's history.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's father had mixed blood from Africa, and his mother was mulatto. All of the history books that I have read stated that his parents were of German, Swiss and English descent. The family came to the US in 1741 and landed in Pennsylvania and then went to Kansas. Pres. Eisenhower's Library has photos of his parents and other important papers.
President Andrew Jackson the the 7th president who served in from 1829 through 1837, he was the son of an Irish woman and a black man. They also stated that his brother was a former slave. They stated that his father was a light skinned slave.
President Lincoln was the 19th President from Illinois who served from 1861 - 1865. He had very dark skin and course hair. It was said that his mother came from an Ethiopian Tribe and he was illegitimate. His father was African. I have seen no such documentation here in the State of Illinois.
President Warren Harding the 29thPresident of the United States, who served from 1921 - 1923. Harding had blacks on both sides of his parents, and he went to an Iberia College founded to educate the slaves. Mrs. Stewart, a 60 year old teacher in suburban Detroit, MI. states she is a 5th cousin of President Warren Harding. Pres. Harding never disputed his black ancestry.
President Calvin Coolidge was the 30th President of the United States in the years 1923 - 1929. His mother was very dark and her last name was "Moor" meaning black or Negro as termed in the United States. The term Moor came from Europe. Therefore they concluded that he was part black.
Lies spread like fire, and you need to know what people are talking and be your own judge if it is an out and out lie. People have always wanted to discredit other famous persons.
