"I feel that it is important for people to see this image on a stamp because there is such minimal visibility for black women on major platforms in the art world as a whole. When I was young, although I had so much support and inspiration from my father, it would have been incredibly powerful to open an art history book or visit museums and see art made by black women that reflected how they saw themselves, their daily lives or their hopes and dreams." – Megan Gabrielle
