Final Note on Oscar Micheaux Stamp Dedication

A few reports on the Oscar Micheaux Stamp ceremony last month have started to appear on the web, including an article posted on Columbia University’s (which hosted the event) website:

“It is particularly fitting and especially exciting to partner today with the U.S. Postal Service as it unveils a stamp in Micheaux’s honor,” said University Provost Claude Steele, who welcomed guests to the event.

A parallel event was held in Great Bend, Kansas, where several of Micheaux’s relatives attended the unveiling (several photographs are available at the Oscar Micheaux website).
