Beginning in 1940 with a ten-cent stamp honoring Booker T. Washington, the United States Post Office Department began issuing stamps to commemorate the contributions of African Americans. Based on their Historian's report dated February 2011, the Post Office has issued 138 commemorative stamps.
Why is this campaign important?
I encourage you to visit their website (http://www.malikmelodies.org/#!dr-clarkes-postage-stamp/c1u9o) and lend your support.
It starts now, let's get this thing done....
