No, the first American president wasn’t a black man named John Hanson
The black John Hanson, who has often been named as the “first black myths surrounding the reason behind the low production of the $2 bill.what your does your will caroline be in legacies
I did my own research and found that John Hanson was the President of the Constitutional Congress, something quite different than the President of the United States considering the United States wasn't even formed then. I have found web sites that claim there is a cover-up about John Hanson and say that he was an African and that history has been changed to make him appear white. They have a photo of a man that they claim to be him. However, I don't believe these claims. I don't know who the man in the photos is, but I do know that there was a John Hanson who lived a hundred years after the John Hanson that I'm looking for, he was from Liberia and African—but NOT the president of the Constitutional Congress. I am wondering if you can help clear the air in some way. The only reason I have a problem believing what they say, is because of the time period that they claim this happened in.
I would like to clear up an urban myth that has been floating around via online for years now and misinformation regarding whether or not a Black man was on the U. I know there are Black people who are in denial about this sensitive topic, just because you want something to be true that relates to us as Black people, but this unfortunately is not the case and never was. We as Black people have to deal with the truth for what it is and across the board. This painting depicts when the first draft of the Declaration of Independence was presented on June 28, to th e Second Continental Congress. On July 4, , the Declaration was officially adopted, it was later signed on August 2, The original painting hangs in the US Capitol rotunda. But he was definitely an white man just like all the other men on the U.
Post a Comment. In the image is a man who has dark skin and wearing a powdered wig while sitting at the table just to the left of the men standing in the center of the engraving. This dark skinned man is John Hanson in his position as president of the continental congress. In the original painting hanging in the U. Capitol Rotunda, the dark skinned man does not appear!!! George Washington was really the 8th President of the United States! George Washington was not the first President of the United States.
We Value Diversity. We Value Education. We Value History. Menu Menu. When it comes to United States history, the grim truth about African-American history is often overshadowed with less than credible facts and unfortunately, many prominent blacks have been discredited for their contributions to the evolution of America history. Apparently, many research reports are confusing Senator John Hanson with an earlier man who bore the same name.
After reading the article, the non-acceptance section seems to be a weak point. Rather than going into the possible difficulties one might have in using this bill, it instead lists 3 funny or interesting stories about how some specific person may or may not have had difficulty using 2-dollar bills. This whole section looks like just a collection of trivia to me. Perhaps this should be re-written with more general explanations and citations about non-acceptance of 2 dollar bills and these 3 stories could be reduced to some minor paragraph about reported instances of non-acceptance?
