First, it should be noted that the term "African-American" is fairly recent. Back in the time of the colonies, the word used was "Negro." One of the first Negroes we know about was Phillis Wheatley, a slave who was taught to read and write by the family in Boston who purchased her. She went on to become a well-respected poet, beginning in the 1760s. Another well-known Negro was Crispus Attucks, a free man who was killed in the Boston Massacre. Another black man who lived around that time and became prominent was a Mason and an abolitionist named Prince Hall. But unfortunately, since most of the slaves who were brought to the colonies were not well-known, and even most of the free black men and women were rarely mentioned by the press, it is difficult to know who was living in the colonies and who was not. Thus, it is also difficult to accurately answer this question.

I'm not sure who the first African American born in the US is, because the first African Americans were born before the United States was a country.

But Agustin, son of slaves Agustin and Francisca, was the first documented African-American, born in St. Augustine in 1606 (before Jamestown was even founded). Previous response left intact below:

"1621 William Tucker is the first African American born in the English colonies."

No one knows who the first African American alive was. This would be impossible to know because it was hundreds of thousands of years ago.

How do you determine what generation American you are?

To determine what generation American you are, count the number of generations between you and the ancestor who migrated from somewhere else to America. If you father was born elsewhere but came to America as a child or as an adult, and you were born in America, you are a first generation American; you are the first born in America. If your mother was born in America but her mother was born elsewhere, your mother is first generation and you are second generation.
