Justice: Ketanji Brown Jackson Makes “Herstory” as First Black Woman Confirmed to Supreme Court

The U.S. Senate voted 53-47 on Thursday to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. She will be the first Black woman and first former public defender to serve on the country’s top court. While Jackson’s confirmation was a “monumental moment in United States history,” it was undercut by the “shameful spectacle” of Republican senators behaving disrespectfully toward Jackson, law professor Michele Goodwin. She adds that the confirmation process remains broken more than three decades after Anita Hill faced hostile questioning.
