To Form A More Perfect Union Stamp Issue 

Fighting For Equality

The Civil Rights Movement can not be boiled down to a single event or attributed to a single person. This stamp issue presents an artistic representation of several pivotal events in the fight for civil rights from the 1948 Executive Order ending segregation in the military to the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

 

“For in a real sense, America is essentially a dream. A dream as yet unfulfilled. It is a dream of a land where men of all races of all nationalities and of all creeds can live together as brothers.”- Martin Luther King, Jr.
