Link’s coverage of the Constance Baker Motley stamp dedication ceremony was a highlight of the past week.

Motley was the first African American woman to argue a case before the U.S. Supreme Court and the first to serve as a federal judge.

She is the subject of this year’s Black Heritage stamp.

“Judge Motley was a brilliant legal strategist who conquered adversities, helped dismantle legal segregation and served as a role model and mentor for those who followed in her footsteps. Her tireless work and unwavering dedication impacted nearly every touchpoint of the 20th-century Civil Rights Movement,” said Anton G. Hajjar, a member of the USPS Board of Governors who spoke at the ceremony.

We also told you about the establishment of a toll-free phone number for employees and managers seeking guidance on what actions to take in the event of an incident of alleged harassment, and we reminded you that the penalties are stiff for misusing USPS vehicles.

Additionally, Link went “On the Job” with Richard Morales, a Port Washington, NY, letter carrier, and “Off the Clock” with Christian Johnston, a Salt Lake City customer relations coordinator who performs in musicals throughout his native Utah.

Among the nuggets Morales shared: “People laugh, but I like to say that in life, all you need is a good hairstylist, a good mechanic and a good postal person.”

Who are we to argue?
