"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

U.S. Navy Sailor "Dorie" Miller,
Filmmaker Oscar Micheaux and

I finally got a chance to look through the new issue of USA Philatelic magazine that the United States Postal Service sends out quarterly and came across a few upcoming 44-cent stamps for 2010 that I wanted to share with the FAM.

Keep these stamps in mind when you go to your local post office and ask for them, or call TOLL-FREE 1-800-STAMP-24 (1-800-782-6724) tp place an order, order online from www.usps.com

First, as part of the Distinguished Sailor series
of postage stamps is Doris "Dorie"Miller.

Set For Release February 4th, 2010

I Found This Pin Image Of Dorie On A Google Search.
It Looks Vintage and So Qool And So I Wanted To Share It

Oscar Micheaux Was a Prolific African-American Filmmaker

Who Made 30+ Black Films (from 1919-1941)
Way Back In The Days

How He Was Able To Raise Money And Get Those Films Done
Is INCREDIBLE In And Of Itself For Those Days.

More on Oscar Micheaux...
The 33rd stamp in the Black Heritage series, to be issued June 22nd, 2010 honors pioneering filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, who wrote, directed, produced and distributed more than 40 movies during the first half of the 20th century. An ambitious, larger-than-life figure, Micheaux thrived at a time when African-American filmmakers were rare, venues for their work were scarce, and support from the industry did not exist. Micheaux’s entrepreneurial spirit and independent vision continue to inspire new generations of filmmakers and artists.

This stamp features a stylized portrait of Oscar Micheaux by Gary Kelley. The artwork is based on one of the few surviving photographs of Micheaux, a portrait that appeared in his 1913 novel The Conquest.

Although only 15 of his movies are known to have survived in whole or in part, Micheaux has become a cinematic icon. In 1986, he was posthumously awarded a special Directors Guild of America award. In 1995, the Producers Guild of America established the Oscar Micheaux Award to honor “an individual or individuals whose achievements in film and television have been accomplished despite difficult odds.”

Third and Final New Stamp:
Negro Baseball League
