Edward Waters College, the historically Black educational institution in Jacksonville, Florida, has announced the opening of a new African American artifacts museum at the newly renovated Susie E. Tolbert House on campus. The museum will include more than 100 artifacts of African American history.
The house was the home for Susie E. Tolbert until her death in 1942. Tolbert taught music and applied social etiquette at Edwards Waters College. The city of Jacksonville named a public elementary school in her honor.
