Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmed

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, becoming the first Black woman Justice in U.S. history. Vice President Kamala Harris, the first Black woman to hold her position, presided over the Senate's 53-47 vote to confirm, with three Republicans joining all 50 Democrats in backing Judge Jackson. She will be sworn in when Associate Justice Stephen Breyer retires this summer.
