The Bowie MD Stamp Club along with Atlantic Coast Exhibitions is sponsoring the show, which features historical letters and stamps from exhibitors from five states, from the valuable and obscure to the new and intriguing; free appraisals of stamps and stamp collections; a youth area with free stamps and collecting materials; and an exhibit of the rare 1901 Inverted Train Stamp, valued at $75,000.

The Stampfair will be at the Holiday Inn, 3400 Fort Meade Road (Route 198) in Laurel, on Saturday from 9: 30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Call (757) 425-8566 for more information or (301) 498-0900 on show day.

Learn lessons in African-American history tonight through Saturday at Towson State University. Taught not from the classroom, but from the stage, the theatrical production of "The Legacy" chronicles major events in the African-American experience.

The Kuumba Players present the educational history show, which was written and directed by TSU alumnus Mojo Gentry. Through drama, singing and dancing, it highlights the accomplishments of African-Americans and proposes harmony for all.

Performances will take place at the Fine Arts Studio Theatre of Towson State University, Osler and Cross Campus drives in Towson, today through Saturday at 8 p.m. Admission is free. Call (410) 830-ARTS.
