Maya Angelou to be honored with Forever Stamp

According to NBC News, in the months since Maya Angelou's passing, Twitter has been campaigning and petitioning for an official postage stamp. Finally, the U.S. Postal Service announced that the beloved poet will be honored with her very own Forever postage stamp.
"Maya Angelou inspired our nation through a life of advocacy and through her many contributions to the written and spoken word," Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan said. "Her wide-ranging achievements as a playwright, poet, memoirist, educator and advocate for justice and equality enhance our culture." 
Sidebar: YES. She is an icon. I'll be getting that stamp.
