Gwen Ifill to be honored with 2020 Black Heritage Series Stamp by USPS

In 2020 the U.S. Postal Service will honor the late PBS NewsHour anchor Gwen Ifill with a commemorative Forever stamp.

The 43rd stamp in the Black Heritage series honors Gwen Ifill (1955–2016), one of America’s most esteemed journalists. Ifill, who died in November 2016 after battling cancer, became the first African American woman to host a national political TV talk show with her 1999 host-debut on PBS' Washington Week.

The stamp features a photo of Ifill taken in 2008 by photographer Robert Severi. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp.
