GNBVT celebrates the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
Congratulations, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
It has taken 232 years and 115 prior appointments for a Black woman to be selected to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States. But we’ve made it. We’ve made it, all of us.
GNBVT celebrates the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. On February 25, 2022, President Joe Biden nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to become the 116th Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court and she was confirmed on April 7, 2022.
I’m excited, because we are changing history. We are letting our younger generations know that anyone can be in any position. As a child we are told that we can be in anything that we want, but seeing it actually happen in a position of power – proves it!
It’s very cool that we finally have our first female black Supreme Court Justice. Representation is so important because it gives an opportunity for all people, especially under-represented communities, to see themselves in that type of work.
