Research Roundtable | Modjeska Monteith Simkins House
$5 for Non-Members
Free for HC Members
Join Katharine Allen, director of research, for a virtual tour of the recently completed exhibit “Modjeska Monteith Simkins: An Advocate of the People.”
Spread across four rooms in the Modjeska Monteith Simkins House, a gathering place for human rights activists for nearly 60 years, this multimedia experience documents Simkins’ upbringing and career as a public health worker and state secretary of the South Carolina NAACP through the lens of the long civil rights movement. It invites visitors to connect the values of Simkins and her contemporaries to those of future generations of activists while closely examining the central—and complicated—role that media has played in the struggle for equality.
This virtual Research Roundtable will be held online via Zoom. Upon registering, participants will receive an email with the web link to the program.
