The U.S. Postal Service announced Monday that it would be issuing a new stamp commemorating poet Maya Angelou.

Following Angelou’s death last year a campaign to get Angelou her own stamp surfaced. Part of the petition read: “Stamps have featured people for their notable accomplishments in the arts. They have included American heroes, but one is missing.”
“Maya Angelou inspired our nation through a life of advocacy and through her many contributions to the written and spoken word,” Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan said in a press statement. “Her wide-ranging achievements as a playwright, poet, memoirist, educator, and advocate for justice and equality enhanced our culture.”
