Katherine Henderson (June 23, 1909 - unknown) was an African American classic female blues singer. The bulk of her recordings took place in Long Island City, New York, United States, in October and November 1928.
Henderson was born in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. She was the niece of Eva Taylor and Clarence Williams.
As a child, she performed in minstrel shows and on the vaudeville circuit. In the late 1920s, she recorded around ten songs, which were issued by Brunswick Records and QRS Records. In 1927, Henderson starred in Bottomland, an ill-fated New York based stage musical written by Williams. The show included the song "Take Your Black Bottom Dance Outside", which Henderson recorded. In 1928, she married John Jackson.
Henderson continued performing until 1944, long after her recording career was over.
She is no relation to Fletcher, Horace, Edmonia, or Rosa Henderson.
