Street renaming immortalizes Shiloh’s Rev. Charles Smith
The four-block stretch of America Street from South 10th Street to Eddie Robinson Sr. Drive ofﬁcially was renamed the Charles T. Smith Boulevard. The street was renamed in honor of the community leader and minister who had been praised for ﬁghting for equality and fairness for those less fortunate prior to his death last year. His widow Eula Smith was joined by 200 people for the sign unveiling, July 6, in front of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, 185 Eddie Robinson Sr. Drive, the church that he had led for 50 years.
