Sylvester L. Corrothers (December 3, 1864 - ?) was a religious leader in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in United States. He led congregations in South Carolina, Arkansas,[1] and New York[2] as well as the Galbraith Church in Washington D.C.

He was born in Yorkville, South Carolina.[1] He studied at Livingstone College.[3]

He led the Galbraith Church in Washington D.C. and hosted an A. M. E. Zion conference with attendees including Bishop George W. Clinton.[4] His image appears in a church history.[5] A letter from Theodore Roosevelt expressed cordial congratulations and regards as well as an inability to attend an event at his Galbraith church.[6]

He supported Theodore Roosevelt's candidacy over William Taft, even threatening to back a Democrat like Speaker of the House Champ Clark over Taft if Taft were to become the Republican nominee.[7]

He married and had three children.
