Henry Adams (December 17, 1802 - November 3, 1872) was a Baptist pastor and leader in the black community in 19th century Kentucky. He was born to free parents in Franklin County, Georgia and became ordained at age 23. He preached throughout the Deep South before moving to Louisville, Kentucky in 1829, where he became minister to black members of First Baptist Church. In 1842, his 45-member congregation eventually withdrew to form First African Baptist Church, which was later renamed Fifth Street Baptist Church. It was the second black Baptist church in the state. He remained pastor of the congregation until his death. Adams was self-educated and became a respected biblical scholar, and led the black Baptist community in Louisville for decades.show more
