On September 14, 1970, Ketanji Brown Jackson’s life began. After nearly 51 years of hard work and dedication to the law, Mrs. Brown Jackson was nominated and confirmed by the United States Senate. Mrs. Brown Jackson became the first Female Black Judge on the Supreme Court of the United States.

On April 7th, of 2022, the entire Democratic Caucus and three republicans voted in favor of Mrs. Brown Jackson, while the 47 other republicans voted against her nomination. Her nomination was bipartisan due to the three Republicans voting in favor of her nomination. This is one of very few recent nominations for the Supreme Court to be bipartisan. The nomination and confirmation of a Supreme Court official is very impactful. That is why it is rare for a nomination to be bipartisan. The process is very political due to the fact that a lot of things in today's day and age get brought before the Supreme Court. A lot of the things that get brought forward are part of the current President’s agenda. 

Before her service on the Supreme Court, Mrs. Brown Jackson was a Justice on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She was also a  Justice onf the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
