The 2020 Blacks in History commemorative stamp series is “Voices of the Harlem Renaissance” and it is gorgeous!
There are four distinct stamps in this set:
Arturo Schomburg an historian, writer, and activist. He co-founded the Negro Society for Historical Research in 1911. His legacy was a large collection of early Black American works of poetry, writing, artworks, books, and slave narratives. The collection was purchased by the New York Public Library and was used to form the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, naming Schomburg the curator.
Anne Spencer was an acclaimed poet, as well as a librarian, activist, and teacher, but one of her most acclaimed talents was as a gardener. Their home and garden were a center of gathering and many intellectual salons with other dignitaries of the Black cultural movement.
Alain Locke held the distinction of being the first Black American Rhodes scholar in 1907. He was an author, philosopher, educator, and patron of the arts.
The stamps are available through the USPS Store
