The U.S. Postal Service has unveiled the Rosa Parks Forever Stamp to honor the civil rights icon on her hundredth birthday for her role in the civil rights struggles of the 1950′s and 60′s.

And a beautiful stamp it is!

Great looking stamp, I wonder if the USPS would still accept it if you put it on the back of the envelope.

When I think of Rosa Parks, I think of her stance against oppression in the South ... and one of the biggest transit stations in LA's metro, where the Green and Blue lines cross in South Central and, on a clear day, you can see LA's skyline in the distance, with all these palm trees in the foreground, and the San Gabriel Mts. in the background.

Great stamp!
