IN THE BLACK HERITAGE SERIES
Singer Joe Coleman
On February 1, 2017, the Postal Service™ released its 40th stamp of the Black Heritage series featuring Dorothy Height. The stamp unveiling was held at Howard University in Washington D.C. celebrating African-American History Month. Although rarely gaining the recognition granted to her male contemporaries, she became one of the most influential civil rights leaders of the 20th century. History of the Black Heritage Series
