On Friday, February 22, the Richmond Main Post Office was officially renamed the Harold D. McCraw Sr. Post Office. Mr. McCraw Sr., was the first and longest serving African American Richmond postmaster. During his twenty four years in this role, Mr. McCraw committed himself to creating pathways for workers to gain leadership skills and to enter managerial roles. One speaker described Mr. McCraw as a “dedicated advocate & activist for the city of Richmond. Committed to mentoring colleagues and promoting equity & equality, both within USPS and in the Richmond community”. Another described Mr. McCraw as “a different kind of leader: good at vision casting, coaching, and delegating”. His sister, Annie Jones, spoke beautifully about Harold’s kind heart, interest in family history and heritage, and passion for voting rights and voter participation.
