Smith, R. L. T. (Robert L. T.)
African American Methodist minister and leader of the Mississippi Democratic Freedom Party. In 1966, he and Aaron Henry filed a request with the FCC to deny the license renewal of the Birmingham television station, WLBT, because it had a history of excluding access from African Americans and of only presenting segregationist views.
