Actress Gabrielle Union unveiled the limited edition stamp on Friday, Aug. 23. The stamp depicts marchers holding signs for equal rights and jobs for all with the Washington Monument in the background.

Art director Antonio Alcalá worked with illustrator Greg Manchess to produce the commemorative stamp, according to the United States Postal Service.

The 1963 March on Washington stamp is the last in the Civil Rights Stamps Series, which includes the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Rosa Parks. You can purchase all of the stamps here.
