On March 23, 2024, The Detroit PCC partnered with The Detroit River Project (DRP) for a Special Stamp Dedication ceremony commemorating the Underground Railroad (UGRR) at St. Matthew's & St. Joseph's Episcopal Church in Detroit, Michigan. We honored Detroiter William Lambert, known as the Detroit Underground Railroad Stationmaster, and one of ten Freedom Fighters featured in the UGRR Stamp Collection. Thank you to all the speakers and everyone who made this event a success. More pics coming soon at www.detroitpcc.com.
