Short Title
They Made Their Stamp on History (Display)

The display, in observance of Black History Month, was located in our children's area. It featured the images of stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service as part of their Black Heritage Series. Each image was printed and mounted to construction paper and displayed in the order of the stamps' release. Additionally, a brief fact (or facts) were added below each image, providing information about the historical significance of each person represented.
