Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Swearing-In Represents Hope for Equal Justice Under Law

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s swearing-in to the United States Supreme Court represents a watershed moment in our nation’s history. The eminently qualified jurist brings new perspectives as the first former public defender, first former member of the United States Sentencing Commission, and the first Black woman to serve on the High Court since its initial assembly in 1790.

The officers were white, and almost all of the female athletes and staff Black.
