Kentaji Brown confirms first black woman to serve U.S. Supreme Court.

The United States made history by confirming Kentaji Brown Jackson as the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

On September 14, 1970, Ketanji Brown Jackson was born. Between 2010 to 2014, she served as Vice-Chair of the United States Sentencing Commission.

For the first time in 233 years, the 51-year-selection old’s meant that a white man would not be the majority on the nation’s highest court

President Joe Biden in the event noted it was a historic moment for the United States of America.

“This milestone should have happened generations ago, but we are always trotting on a path towards a perfect union. Nevertheless, America today is taking a giant step towards making our union more perfect,” Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

“People sometimes talk about standing on the shoulders of giants; well, Judge Jackson will go down in history as an American giant upon whose shoulders others will stand tall. And our democracy will be better off for it.”

Jackson got support from three Senate Republicans from a gruelling and brutal confirmation process.

He delivered Biden a bi-partisan, 53-47 approval for his first Supreme Court nominee.

It allowed Biden to show the Black voters who rescued his floundering 2020 primary campaign that he can deliver for them following the recent defeat of voting rights legislation.

At 42 days, the confirmation will be among the shortest in history. Although, it is longer than it took to seat Donald Trump’s last court pick during his presidency.
