The Stamps post office is holding a public dedication ceremony Wednesday for the Maya Angelou Forever Stamp on Wednesday at Lafayette County High School that was set to feature U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Ark., and other speakers.

Angelou, an author, poet, actress and civil-rights champion who died in 2014, gained wide acclaim for her book I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, an autobiographical account of her childhood that includes her formative years in Stamps.

The stamp was released Tuesday after a Washington, D.C., ceremony.
