According to historian Leroy Vaughn, author of Black People and Their Place in World History, Barack Obama is not the first Black President of The United States.

Thomas Jefferson
Served as President from 1801 to 1809 and according to historian Leroy Vaughn was the “son of a half-bread Indian squaw and a Virginia mulatto father.”

Andrew Jackson
According to Vaughn Jackson was the son of an Irish woman who married a black man. His oldest brother was reportedly sold as a slave.

Abraham Lincoln
1861 to 1865
The “Great Emancipator” was said to have been the illegitimate son of an African man, according to Leroy’s findings. Lincoln had very dark skin and coarse hair and his mother allegedly came from an Ethiopian tribe.

Warren Harding
1921 to 1923
Evidently, Harding had black ancestors between both sets of parents. Harding also attended Iberia College, a school founded to educate fugitive slaves.

Calvin Coolidge
1923 to 1929
Coolidge claimed his mother was dark because of mixed Indian ancestry. Coolidge’s mother’s maiden name was “Moor” and in Europe the name “Moor” was given to all blacks just as “Negro” was used in America. It later was concluded that Coolidge was part black.
