Bishop Richard Allen Postage Stamp


The Postal Service Celebrates Black History Month Issuing a Forever Stamp Honoring Richard Allen,

Founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church

Marks the 39th Stamp in the Black Heritage Series



Black Heritage: Richard Allen

Preacher, activist, and civic leader Richard Allen (1760–1831) was an inspiring figure whose life and work resonate profoundly in American history. This stamp coincides with the 200th anniversary of Allen’s founding of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church, one of the most important institutions in African-American life, as well as his election as its first bishop.

The stamp art is a portrait of Allen, a detail from an 1876 print titled “Bishops of the A.M.E. Church.” Featuring Allen in the center surrounded by ten other bishops and six historical vignettes, the print is from the collection of the Library Company of Philadelphia. The noon ET Feb. 2 First-Day-of-Issue ceremony will take place at the Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church in Philadelphia.

    I believe everything wrote made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you were to write
    a awesome post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added something
    to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Bishop Richard
    Allen Postage Stamp – Allen Temple AME Church is kinda boring.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news headlines to
    grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to
    grab readers interested about what you’ve written. In my
    opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

    Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a massive
    amount work? I am brand new to blogging but
    I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
