Gwen Ifill Forever® Stamp
The 43rd stamp in the Black Heritage series celebrates an esteemed journalist and trailblazer.
The 43rd stamp in the Black Heritage® series honors Gwen Ifill (1955–2016), one of America's most esteemed journalists. Among the first African Americans to hold prominent positions in both broadcast and print journalism, she was a trailblazer in the profession.
The stamp art features a photo of Ifill taken in 2008 by photographer Robert Severi.
After graduating from college in 1977, Ifill’s first job as a journalist was at The Boston Herald-American. She later worked at The Baltimore Evening Sun, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, where she was a White House correspondent and provided the paper’s coverage of Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign in 1992.
In 1994, Ifill moved to a broadcast job at NBC, where she covered politics in the D.C. bureau. Five years later, she joined PBS; she became the senior political correspondent for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer and moderator and managing editor of Washington Week, the first woman and first African American to moderate a major television news-analysis show. During her career, Ifill covered seven presidential campaigns and in 2004, became the first African-American female journalist to moderate a vice-presidential debate. She went on to moderate the 2008 vice-presidential debate. In 2013, Ifill became part of the first all-female team to anchor a daily national news show, PBS NewsHour.
