The Tuesday Post: Lena Horne Postage Stamp

Lena Horne

The Lena Horne Forever postage stamp goes on sale today.  “Lena Horne was a trailblazer in Hollywood for women of color and used her fame as an entertainer to become an important civil rights spokesperson,” the Postal Service said in its Dec. 28 press release.  I personally love the photo on the stamp – I hear her music when I see it.  You can also get special pictorial postmark through the Kansas City post office (instructions near the bottom of this post)  Lena Horne Postmark
