Montgomery and Selma are getting stamped.
The two Alabama cities will be among the key landmarks of the civil rights movement recognized when the U.S. Postal Service releases 10 stamps honoring the era.
One stamp will feature the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott involving Rosa Parks. Another will commemorate the 1965 Selma march when Martin Luther King Junior led 25,000 demonstrators from Selma to Montgomery for voting rights.
The stamps are part of the Postal Service's 2005 stamp program celebrating the people and events that have shaped the history of America.
The stamps will be unveiled on Aug 30 at Montgomery's Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts.
