Jack Mitchell Photograph on 2019 USPS Stamp

The United States Postal Service announced the 42nd stamp in the Black Heritage series honoring American performer Gregory Hines. The stamp design features a Jack Mitchell photograph. At least ten million of the stamps will be produced in 2019. Gregory Hines (1946–2003), had a uniquely individual style of tap dancing, and was a versatile performer who danced, acted and sang on Broadway, on television, and in movies. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp. Photographer Jack Mitchell (1925-2013) took the color photograph of Hines in 1988 in his Manhattan studio.
