Chesnutt celebration memorabilia

With much thanks to Evelyn Williams from the United States Post Office, the Chesnutt Association now has some memorabilia from the dedication of the Charles W. Chesnutt stamp, which was issued in 2008 as part of the Black Heritage Stamp Series. The dedication ceremony was held at the Cleveland, Ohio Public Library on Jan. 31, 2008.

Thanks one more time to Evelyn for thinking of the Chesnutt Association and contributing this wonderful memorabilia!
