Who Was Vicente Guerrero?
This question was submitted to us recently by Calvin Ward.
Calvin wrote that he understood Guerrero was the second president of Mexico and that 'a[n] African/Mexican and a slave if I'm not mistake[n].' He also wrote that 'Vicente was once removed from slavery.'
As you can see I k[n]ow very little about [this] and only seen it in literature a few times. I do know he was beloved by the Mexican[s] but him being black made it to where they wouldn't let him be the first president and he won the second election only to be assassinated.
We referred the question to our Facebook group and here are the responses that we received...
