Day 2 of Black Americans you don't know, but should. Adam Powell. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. was an American Baptist pastor and politician who represented the Harlem neighborhood of New York City in the United States House of Representatives. Adam Powell was a huge activist. Adam was white passing biracial so he was given more opportunities than other people in the community. He used his advantage to spread the word of equality. Adam was the first African- American to be elected to Congress in New York. He was re-elected for almost 3 decades. Adam Powell also marched with Martin Luther King Jr. Powell became a powerful national politician of the Democratic Party, and served as a national spokesman on civil rights and social issues.
