41c Mendez v. Westminster single
- On September 14, 2007, in Santa Ana, California, the Postal Service issued a 41-cent Mendez v. Westminster commemorative stamp. Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland, designed the stamp.
- This issue marks the sixtieth anniversary of a groundbreaking World War II-era legal case in which a group of civic-minded Hispanic parents in California successfully sued to end segregation in their schools. According to the stamp's art director and designer, Ethel Kessler, the illustration by Rafael Lopez, a native of Mexico City who maintains his studio in San Diego, California, "masterfully integrated the look of the Mexican muralists with the idea of looking forward to the light."
- Ashton-Potter (USA), Ltd., printed 40 million stamps in the offset process.
