Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmed, April 7, 2022 | comments
“Today is a moment of historic consequence. The Senate just voted — 53 to 47 —  to confirm the first Black woman to serve on the highest court in the land, Supreme Court Justice Ketanaji Brown Jackson,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Joyce Beatty. “Her judicial temperament and keen legal skills will make her a Justice, of which all America proud. As she makes history today, she stands on the shoulders of the Black female trailblazers who came before her. And today, we sent a message to Black women and little girls, like my granddaughter Leah. Anything is possible. This is our power and our message.”
