THE FIRST PRESIDENT Documented national history states that the nations first president had no children. But the oral history of the descendants of this African American family tells a different story.THE CONTROVERSY Many people will believe the story of George Washington fathering a slave son. Others will find it difficult if not impossible to believe that Washington had an intimate relationship with a slave named Venus. Their fateful union during the era of antebellum slavery produced a son West Ford.THE SECRET As time and space distanced the Ford family from its beginnings at Mount Vernon each generation continued to walk a precarious line bearing the weight of their heritage and battling issues of skin color status and identity. Linda Allen Bryant a descendant of West Ford pens her familys narrative history in I Cannot Tell a Lie. Their genealogy is rich in adventure love tragedy sacrifice and courage-a story that will haunt you long after you turn the last page.
