USPS Celebrates Black History Month At Dorothy Height Stamp Event

The U.S. Postal Service, in partnership with the Office of African and African American Studies of the School District of Palm Beach County, celebrated Black History Month at the Riviera Beach Preparatory and Achievement Academy.

The African American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARL&CC) hosted the program that highlighted the Postal Service's 40th inductee in the Black Heritage Stamp Series. Dorothy Height (1912-2010) was a tireless activist who dedicated her life to fighting for racial and gender equality.
