After years of social involvement and struggle in the NYC public school system of the "60's", Lloyd Smith came to work on research at Harvard University for a post-graduate certificate. In the years since then he has become involved in the struggle :· For low cost housing
· Against the over development of Cambridge, Massachusetts
· Against runaway increases caused by dramatic changes in market rents and
· For tenant protections
In this effort he has become a TV Producer at CCTV and in his own production company. He is the host of his own TV talk show, seen on CCTV channel 9 every Sunday evening from 7:30PM to 8:00PM. The show deals with human justice and survival. It emphasizes low cost housing and tenant protections. It is entitled "Living In America". The addition of Mr. Smith as the Shawmut Education Television and documentary producer is a perfect illustration of our organization's effort to bring a living cultural competency to all Shawmut Education programs of Computer Training, Job Placement and Video Production.
