A big history has been made as the US Senate confirmed Ketanji Brown Jackson as first ever Black woman to become a Supreme Court justice in the United States of America.
The Senate voted 53 to 47in her favour, to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the 116th Supreme Court justice. But the 51-year-old won’t be joining any of the court’s cases for a few more months, that’s because the seat Jackson is set to take over won’t open until June or July.
There hasn’t been any formal date scheduled and announced for her swearing ceremony, but there are reports that it’ll likely be held in summer 2022.,
When sworn in this summer, Jackson will be the first Black woman to serve on the United states of America’s high court.
