Lydia Mendoza Honored on U.S. Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: May 15, 2013 - United States

The United States has issued a new postage stamp honoring Tejano music star Lydia Mendoza.

Lydia Mendoza was one of the first stars of Tejano music and the stamp depicts a publicity photo of Mendoza from the 1950s.

The stamp captures the look of a vintage 45-rpm record sleeve and features the flag of Texas, Mendoza’s home state, splashed across the entire stamp.
