On January 31, 1992, the USPS issued a stamp to honor W.E.B. DuBois with a stamp. Shown here is a genuine First Day Cover, an envelope with the new W.E.B. DuBois stamp depicting a portrait of DuBois, as well as a small picture of DuBois at his typewriter, cancelled from the city of issue (Atlanta, GA) on the first day of issue captioned above.
The full-color cachet (artwork on the envelope) features a portrait of DuBois. The picture is printed on silk with an embossed gold border. Co-founder of the NAACP, DuBois was able to gain respect and clout as a leading voice in fighting racism through his editorship of it's magazine Crisis.
Double matted in blue & white, this piece is sized to fit a standard 8 X 10 frame. ***Certificate of Authenticity Included***
