In honor of its first anniversary, the National Museum of African American History and Culture will be commemorated with a Forever Stamp by the U.S. Postal Service.
Deputy Postmaster General and Chief Government Relations Officer Ronald A. Stroman praised the D.C.-based museum for acknowledging African-American history in the U.S. and called the recognition of a stamp an honor.
"The National Museum of African American History and Culture is an American treasure that serves as a repository for the history of suffering, struggle and triumph of African Americans," Stroman said in a statement to NBC News.
