Right on time for the 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the March on Washington – the US Postal Service has released the “1963 March on Washington” limited-edition Forever stamp. The stamp is the final piece to the 3-part civil rights series commemorating courage, strength and equality in America by the USPS.
It is so appropriate and so fitting for the United States Postal Service to issue this Forever stamp on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington,” said Lewis. “The march was one of the turning points in the on-going struggle for civil rights and social justice in America. In the years to come, when individuals use this stamp, they will be reminded of the distance we have come and the progress we have made as a nation. And they will be reminded of the civic duty of every American to stand up for what is right in our democracy.
