Don't believe the rumors. There is no stoppage of the popular stamp series. This was one of those silly internet stories that proves to be completely untrue. The Black Heritage Series continues and will continue to document the achievements of African Americans.
We get many emails asking when the Post Office will issue a stamp for Gen. Colin Powell. In fact we get more emails asking about him then our current President Barack Obama. I remind all inquiring that the rules are the same for everyone: a worthy individual must be deceased for at least 10 years before being considered.
