African Americans on stamps: a celebration of African-American heritage.

By United States Postal Service. Washington, D.C.: United States Postal Service, 2004.

This thin, thirty-paged color booklet was published by the United States Postal Service thirteen years ago. The Black Heritage stamp series began in 1978, and ever since then, African American heroes and heroines have been honored on postage stamps. The Citizens Stamp Advisory Committee, CSAC, votes on which candidate will be the next postage stamp. Harriet Tubman was the first Black Heritage postage stamp. This booklet is arranged alphabetically from A to Z beginning with the dancer Alvin Ailey and ending with Presidential Medal of Freedom winner Whitney Moore Young.
