Research Roundtable | Modjeska Monteith Simkins

1601 Richland Street
Columbia, SC 29201

Modjeska Monteith Simkins was born in Columbia, S.C. on December 5, 1899,
into a society that legally dispossessed women and people of color of their
civil liberties. Over the course of her 92 years, she displayed a courage and
perseverance that many argue was unmatched.

Join Katharine Allen, Director of Research at Historic Columbia, to learn
about the ongoing interpretive improvements at her former home, which will
reopen to the public later this year.

Participants are welcome to bring their lunch to this program.
