Title

African American Stamp Collection

Description

America’s history books silenced and marginalized the trials, tribulations, contributions and achievements of African American’s to America’s very being. However, in the late 70's the United State's Postal Service made an effort to spread the truth about the contributions of African American made to the United States in a small put powerful way. The Black Heritage Series began in 1979 with the first stamp depicting the image of Harriet Tubman, a brave and courageous woman that risked her life so others could have freedom.
