The 43rd stamp in the U.S. Postal Service's Black Heritage series honors journalist Gwen Ifill (1955–2016). The stamp features a photo of Ifill taken in 2008 by photographer Robert Severi. Among the first African Americans to hold prominent positions in both broadcast and print journalism including The Evening Sun in Baltimore, Ifill was a trailblazer in the profession. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamp.
