Campaign for Ethel Hedgeman
USPS Forever Postage Stamp
Let's get it done! In short, Ethel Hedgeman Lyle is one of those rare individuals who brought her vision to life in a way that has continued well past her own lifetime. Her efforts to unite women around shared interests and a common cause served as the model upon which many of today’s organized women’s service groups were—and are being- -formed. Her devotion to serving all mankind (not just some) is another hallmark of her character and belief in the American spirit, despite living in Jim Crow America. And it is because of her life’s work and her subsequent rich legacy, both of which confirm her as a notable history maker and shaper, that Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated is herewith presenting Ethel Hedgeman Lyle for consideration to be featured on a 2019-2020 USPS Forever Postage Stamp.
