The virtuous life of Bishop John Hurst Adams is keenly etched upon the hearts and minds of those who knew and served with him. The embodiment of his character, his ability to command an authoritative presence, his astuteness and accuracy in his disposition, his scholarly contributions to society, and a champion as a [fervent] social justice activist was certainly unmatched and will not go unnoticed. Wilberforce University salutes you, Bishop John Hurst Adams. On January 10, 2018, we lost a leader and mentor, but heaven has gained a son.
Herman J. Felton Jr.
President, Wilberforce University
