In a recent first-day-of-issue ceremony at the Peter Norton Symphony Space, the U.S. Postal Service celebrated the life and legacy of Lena Horne, a Tony Award recipient, three-time Grammy winner, and now the 41st honoree in the Black Heritage stamp series.

“Today, we honor the 70-year career of a true American legend,” Deputy Postmaster General Ronald Stroman, who dedicated the stamp, said in a statement.

“With this Forever stamp, the Postal Service celebrates a woman who used her platform as a renowned entertainer to become a prolific voice for civil rights advancement and gender equality.”
