Columbia – US Civil Rights Trail

Tread a Troubled Path to Equality

Like in most Southern states, the path to social justice and equality in South Carolina was a struggle: Segregation, Jim Crow laws, voter discrimination and racial violence were not easily overcome. Columbia in particular was home to several pivotal moments in the Civil Rights Movement. These events are remembered and preserved through sites in Columbia, including the South Carolina State House and the Modjeska Monteith Simkins House.
