On February 25, 2022, President Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to be the 116th Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. She would be the first Black woman justice ever to serve on the Court.
Judge Jackson’s confirmation begins this Monday, March 21, at 11am ET / 8am PT, and she is scheduled to speak. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event for many, so join us as we watch this historic appointment via the NAACP’s watch party on youtube.
Ketanji Brown Jackson is the first Black woman nominated to the Supreme Court of the United States. And it’s about time.
America deserves a U.S. Supreme Court that represents all people.
It’s time for the historic confirmation of the FIRST Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, so that we can bring the lived experience of being black and a woman to our justice system and put a few more cracks into that glass ceiling.
Jackson’s confirmation hearings are expected to start soon. She will be under intense scrutiny, and the discussions leading up to and during her confirmation hearings are sure to be rife with racist and sexist undertones.
