African American Female Justice

Ketanji Brown Jackson Supreme Court Hearing Next Week In Senate Judiciary Committee

Hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee will be conducted this week on the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson by President Joe Biden for the Supreme Court vacancy created by the soon to be retired Justice Stephen Breyer.

Jackson has been on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since last year, previously serving on the Federal District Court for DC since 2013.

It is expected that only a few Republicans will support her nomination, but it will be enough to promote her confirmation, as all 50 Democrats are expected to support her.

Another barrier will be broken when Jackson becomes the first African American female justice, long overdue!
