painting of Martin Luther King Jr. with the Reflecting Pool and Washington Monument in the background
33c Martin Luther King Jr. approved stamp art by Keith Birdsong, c. 1999

Martin Luther King’s I Have a Dream speech was commemorated in the Postal Service’s Celebrate the Century stamp series issued at the end of the twentieth century. A trace of brightness on the horizon represents hope, while King wears the March’s official badge.
