Today marks history, Kentanji Brown Jackson the first Black woman to serve in the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Senate confirmed the President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson on Thursday in a historic 53-47 vote making for her to become the first Black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation.

The confirmation represents a significant victory for Democrats and also a Bipartisan party and the President to deliver on a campaign promise he made as the US faces a number of challenges including a battle in Ukraine as the war efforts become a priority.

The exact date of the final full Senate vote on Jackson’s confirmation remains unknown, but Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin has said he hopes to have it by April 8. Should the Senate vote be deadlocked along party lines as well, Vice President Kamala Harris would cast the tie-breaking vote.
