Adam Clayton Powell Jr. was pastor of the historic Abyssinian Church in Harlem for many years and America’s only nationally prominent black politician. Many Americans knew of the kind of Christianity represented by Powell only because they knew something about him. An historic and contradictory figure, Powell steered much of the Great Society legislation through Congress, but his career ended badly.
