Photos: Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation to high court




Basic

The Senate’s confirmation of estimate Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court concludes her historic nomination to become the nation’s first Black female justice.

Jackson, 51, is only the sixth woman and third Black justice to ascend to the high court, which will for the first time have two Black members, three members of color and four women.

As has been true of most recent confirmation battles, the time of action was partisan and often ugly, particularly last month’s Senate hearings.

But Jackson survived and is now set to join the Supreme Court in the fall, replacing the retiring Justice Stephen G. Breyer.
