Justice Jackson

April 9, 2022

On Thursday, the Senate confirmed Ketanji Brown Jackson as the 116th justice, making her the first Black woman to join the Supreme Court. It was a history-making moment for Judge Jackson, but also for President Biden, who served as vice president to the first Black President, selected the first Black woman to be named vice president, and is now linked to another groundbreaking first. Public Strategies’ Howard Schweitzer, Mark Alderman, and Towner French speak of a larger meaning of the incoming justice’s elevation and discuss the ways many of the most pressing cultural issues today impact how we engage politically.
