A noted writer, historian, and educator, William Edward Burghardt Du Bois joined other distinguished African-Americans as part of the Black Heritage series. A leader in the early movement for equality for African-Americans, he founded the Niagara Movement in 1905. This organization later evolved into the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The stamp was issued in conjunction with the first day of Black History Month.
