On April 30, 1789, Virginia planter and slave owner George Washington became the first American president. However, there is historical evidence proving that Washington was not the first.
During the earlier years of America’s fight for independence, 14 men held the title of president. In fact, these men presided over the Continental Congress starting in 1774. Atlanta Black Star dives deep into “secret history” with a new original video entitled “14 Before George Washington.”
