Modjeska Monteith Simkins Self-Guided Tour

Presented by Historic Columbia at Modjeska Monteith Simkins House, Columbia SC

May 27 - 29 2022
Modjeska Monteith Simkins Self-Guided Tour

Tour the Modjeska Monteith Simkins House, now featuring the dynamic “An Advocate of the People” exhibit, during special hours for self-guided tours.

From a young age, Modjeska Monteith Simkins practiced social activism. Her career involved working with local and national civil rights leaders and NAACP lawyers such as Thurgood Marshall, who stayed at her home. Simkins’ efforts in the realm of education, public health, and human rights led her to receive the Order of the Palmetto-the State of South Carolina’s highest honor-before her death in 1992.

Spread across four rooms, this multimedia experience documents Simkins’ upbringing and career
