Tracy Brooks on The Hidden President

Original Air Date: 5/27/2009 11:30 AM - Talk to Tracy Brooks Radio Show
Who, What, Was "Hidden President" in Our American History?
According to Tracy Brooks: A "Black" Man, A Moor, John Hanson Was the First President of the United States! 1781-1782 A.D.??? George Washington was really the 8th President of the United States! George Washington was not the first President of the United States. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson. Don't go checking the encyclopedia for this guy's name - he is one of those great men that are lost to history. If you're extremely lucky, you may actually find a brief mention of his name. The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation. This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land). Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington). In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress.

Man, i get into it with Moors about Hanson all the time.

The Hanson that everyone THINKS was the first black president is the WRONG person. the picture we are given by proponents of this urban legend is that of John Hanson, the ambassador to Liberia. Here is how we show and prove:

The picture we are shown of John Hanson (http://www.dickgregory.com/image/JohnHanson.gif) is a daguerro type of photograph that was not invented until the mid 19th century. The Continental Congress was formed in 1774 , there was NO photograph technology back then.

This myth has been debunked by Phil Valentine, the editor at American Legacy, and several other people.

Folks USE your critical thinking skills...!

So he still was African. We see the picture of a white Jesus all the time I am ssure this is not the real picture of Jesus. He would look more like me...black. In the early forming of the US States do you think they would allow an image of a black person. I have an old book about the people of Kenya and they are all white.
