Althea Gibson - USPS Forever Stamps

      As I mentioned in my previous entries, I ordered so many forever stamps on Today, I'm going to share this block of four forever stamps, Althea Gibson, with you. Yesterday, I mentioned that I've never interested in watching sports, but I know about Althea Gibson, a pioneering tennis player who became the first black Wimbledon champion. I learned about her life story when I was taking an ESL class four years ago. I read the biography of her. At that time, I wasn't expecting that I would have her stamps! :) I was glad when I found her forever stamps. This is the 36th stamp in the Black Heritage series, so there are many other great stamps released from USPS. I'll share them with you in the near future. :)
