Happy Birthday Rosa Parks

rosaparks_stamp2x2The Postal Service launched a new set of civil rights stamps on January 1 with the Emancipation Proclamation Forever Stamp, issued at The National Archives in Washington, DC. The series includes a stamp honoring civil rights icon Rosa Parks. Her refusal to sit in the back of a Montgomery, AL, bus December 1, 1955 ignited a movement that ultimately challenged racial segregation and inspired others to similar actions. In August, the series will culminate with the dedication of a stamp recognizing the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington. The Rosa Parks Forever Stamp will go on sale nationwide Feb. 4, which would have been her 100th birthday, at local Post Offices.
