Scott Joplin

The Scott Joplin Black heritage stamp was issued on June 9, 1983, in Sedalia, Missouri, and was created by Jerry Pickney. A native of Arkansas, Joplin learned to play the piano as a child and is most known for his compositions including "Sugar Cane Rag" and "The Entertainer," composed in 1902. In 1976 he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his many compositions.
