Powell, who was pastor of the famous Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, became the first black U. called for an end to lynching in the South and Jim Crow laws, called for integrating congressional restaurants, recreational facilities and press stations and advocated for the independence of African and Asian nations.
He chaired the House Committee on Education and Labor and helped create several legislative reforms including a minimum-wage increase, educational resources for the deaf, funding for student loans, work hour regulations and job training. Powell served until 1970, and then due to a plethora of controversy he lost the Democratic primary by a small margin to Charles Rangel, who still holds the seat. Powell enjoyed fishing, clamming and socializing with a wide range of friends. In 1937, he and his wife Isabel Geraldine Washington bought their house on Dorothy West avenue, at the corner of Myrtle avenue, which they called the Bunny Cottage after their pet names for each other, Bunny Girl and Bunny Boy.
