The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is kicking off Black History Month with a series of stamps featuring Blacks who made signicant contributions to the Black experience in the US.
We continue to build our collection of Black Heritage and Forever Stamps depicting Blacks who have made significant contributions to Amercian History. We recently added the new Emancipation Proclamation stamp that was introduced on January 1, 2013 and the Rosa Parks stamp that was introduced on February 4, 2013. We are now eagerly awaiting the release of two more Black Heritage stamps that will be introduced later this year honoring Althea Gibson and Ray Charles.
Here are two of the latest stamps to be released in 2013 by the USPS that represent the history of Black America.
