Senate Confirms Ketanji Brown Jackson, Elevating the First Black Woman to the Supreme Court

The New York Times:

The Senate on Thursday confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, making her the first Black woman to be elevated to the pinnacle of the judicial branch in what her supporters hailed as a needed step toward bringing new diversity and life experience to the court.

Not a lot of drama, because three Republicans had already pledged their support (and reasonably so), but historic nonetheless. Today marks a great day in American history.
