“I had the pleasure of speaking with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson earlier this month and it became immediately clear why President Biden chose her. Her words, actions, and readiness clearly demonstrate that she has been preparing for this moment her entire life. From her work on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to the eight years she spent as a federal trial court judge, to her early days as a public defender, Judge Jackson will bring an unprecedented resume to our nation’s highest court. She is poised to be the most historic and impactful Supreme Court Justice of the 21st century. Judge Jackson will also bring her lifetime of perspective as a Black woman, something our nation’s highest court has never seen. We know that when America’s boardrooms, legislatures, and even the Supreme Court start to resemble America, we all benefit. Today is a wonderful day to confirm the first Black Woman Supreme Court Justice,” said Congressional Black Caucus Chair Joyce Beatty.
