    Hey all,

    The following message was sent to the SCOR listserve for minority graduate students at the Univ. of Michigan. I have not taken the time to verify it because I really need to be studying right now, but I wanted to pass it along just in case its true.

    FYI, PASS THE WORD ON. US POST OFFICE TO DESTROY AFRICAN AMERICAN
    STAMPS!Thurgood Marshall, Roy Wilkins, Langston Hughes, Zora
    NealeHurston, Patricia Roberts Harris are all on these stamps.Please
    forward this and buy a book of our stamps ASAP.The P.O. will DESTROY
    all remaining African AmericanHeritage stamps at the end of the month
    instead of following theirusual procedure of selling them until they
    are depleted. Why?Because we're not buying them! However, our postal
    workers areasking patrons to complain to the Post Master, via a
    complaintform. Please ask for and complete the form (at the post
    office). Skipthe love, flag, rose or teddy- bear stamps that they
    offer you automatically,Request African-American stamps every time.
    If we don't buy them,nobody will. We need to keep the little things
    that we do get.

    I knew this wasn't true...I remember the first time this came out and it was a few years ago. I continue to buy AA stamps whenever I can.
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!
