Admittedly, I pridefully buy Black Heritage stamps! They are my preference. The United States Post Office just added another Forever stamp to its impressive lineup, notably that of Maya Angelou. Though we lost Dr. Angelou last year, her presence through her poems, books, recordings, and now her stamp keep her memory alive. An incredible force, I recently saw a video whereby Dr. Angelou was rapping to a tune called the “Harlem Hopscotch.” How talented and accomplished she was! I frequently quote Maya Angelou in my conversations and writings. My favorite quote is “when people show you who they are, believe them..!” I’m learning! I am delighted that Maya Angelou’s memory will now continue through another avenue, namely … the issuance of a Forever stamp bearing her resemblance. “Phenomenal Woman”…that’s Maya!
