So let's get going this Sunday AM. Our theme this week is Women on Stamps, as March is Women's History Month in several countries. I am also noting that March 8 was Woman's Day, do I have that right? So here is a new stamp issued by the US Postal Service:
Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm (November 30, 1924 – January 1, 2005) was an American politician, educator, and author. She was a Congresswoman, representing New York's 12th Congressional District for seven terms from 1969 to 1983. In 1968, she became the first African-American woman elected to Congress. On January 25, 1972, she became the first major-party black candidate for President of the United States and the first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination (US Senator Margaret Chase Smith had previously run for the 1964 Republican presidential nomination). She received 152 first-ballot votes at the 1972 Democratic National Convention.
There is more info at the Wiki link. In the meantime, I must get this posted!
Theme next week: Letters, postcards, and the post.
Theme two weeks from now: farms and farm animals.
