Like the unprecedented nature of disasters today’s Blog is on the historical nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to become the first Black woman U. S. Supreme Court Justice. President Joe Biden made a campaign pledge two years ago to nominate a Black woman to the High Court to diversify and make the Court more representative of the U.S. population. Highly qualified, Judge Brown Jackson serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. For eight years Brown Jackson has served as a federal district Judge, and she has clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Breyer who retired to open the seat for which she is being considered. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed by the U.S. Senate three times over the years with bipartisan support. Confirmation hearings are set to begin in the coming weeks. If confirmed, Judge Brown Jackson would be the sixth woman and third Black justice to serve on the Supreme Court. But, for now, let’s celebrate a milestone in U.S. history and an epic day at the White House – the picture is worth a million words: President Biden, the first Biracial Vice President Harris and the first Black woman U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
