This issue marks the sixtieth anniversary of a groundbreaking World War II-era legal case in which a group of civic-minded Hispanic parents in California successfully sued to end segregation in their schools. According to the stamp's art director and designer, Ethel Kessler, the illustration by Rafael Lopez, a native of Mexico City who maintains his studio in San Diego, California, "masterfully integrated the look of the Mexican muralists with the idea of looking forward to the light."
