Homeschool Friday | Columbia Civil Rights History

Friday, February 7, 2020 10:00 am

1616 Blanding Street
Columbia, SC 29201

In appreciation of Black History Month we will learn more about the people
who made lasting impressions on the lives of Columbians. Students will
explore the legacies African Americans have made on both the physical and
cultural landscape. By learning specifics of the Civil Rights pioneers who
called Columbia home, students will glean new knowledge of the origins and
events of the movement.

All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s
Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s
program is from 10 - 11:30 am and includes hands-on activities while students
learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia.
Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle
school age levels.

Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10
students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to
explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift
Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted.

The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays
are $5 for HC members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and
non-members at the door.

If you have questions, would like to be on our mailing list, or if you would
like to register for the entire year of Homeschool Friday programs, please
contact the Education Department at or
