Civil Spelling Rights
These stamps are based on contemporary art of the events depicted.
The misspelling of the bridge's name "is an artful idiosyncrasy on the part of the artist," USPS spokeswoman Frances Frazier told The Virtual Stamp Club. "In the context of the civil rights stamps, where the overall selections reflect highly personal interpretations of these symbolic events, these kinds of artistic expressions are entirely appropriate. The Postal Service consulted several sources in the process of developing these stamps, including a living civil rights icon."
