On Friday, US Vice President Joe Biden announced the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, beginning a historic confirmation process for the country’s first black woman to serve on the highest court.
“Today, as we watch freedom and liberty under attack abroad, I’m here to fulfill my responsibilities under the Constitution, to preserve freedom and liberty here in the United States of America,” Biden said at the White House as he introduced Jackson.
“For too long, our government, our courts haven’t looked like America,” Biden said. “I believe it’s time that we have a court reflects the full talents and greatness of our nation with a nominee of extraordinary qualifications, and that we inspire all young people to believe that they can one day serve their country at the highest level.” Ketanji Brown Jackson Wiki, Bio, Height, Weight, Measurements, Husband, Facts.
