This church is famous for its prominent ministers, Adam Clayton Powell and his son, Congressman Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. The elder Powell lured thousands of blacks to Harlem, preaching a social gospel which combined spirituality with social activism. The church, which was organized downtown in 1808 by people who had split from the First Baptist Church, takes its name from the ancient name of Ethiopia.
