The First US Black President?

Questions have been raised over some time now about the ancestry of several former presidents of the United States, none more so than Eisenhower with pictures circulating of a grandmother who was black. Certainly his mother looks to have African ancestry but it was a matter never discussed when Ike held office. It’s clear times have changed whether Barack Obama wins or loses the presidential race.
The situation is surely similar to that in Egypt where many pharaohs were either African or partly so. Herodotus claims that a number were and it is quite wrong to assume that the pharaohs of the 25th Dynasty were the first:
“After this man the priests enumerated to me from a papyrus roll the names of other kings, three hundred and thirty in number; and in all these generations of men eighteen were Ethiopians, one was a woman, a native Egyptian…”Herodotus Histories: Egypt.
Carved stone heads of the very first Egyptian pharaohs appear to be black African.
