Modjeska Monteith Simkins: An Advocate for the People
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, research and archives manager, for a presentation on how Historic Columbia plans to honor her life and legacy. Discussion will focus on how primary sources from the Jim Crow period shed light on the segregated and unequal South that she fought to change.
Participants are welcome to bring their lunch to this program.
