Statement of the National Congress of Black Women, Inc. on the
Nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court
As an organization of black women firsts, the National Congress of Black Women, Inc. supports the nomination of the first African American woman to the Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Having been founded by the first Black woman elected to Congress, Shirley Chisholm; a "First Lady" of the Civil Rights Movement, civil rights leader Coretta Scott King; the first African-American Woman Secretary of State, C. Delores Tucker, as well as our having erected the first statue of an African American woman in the U.S. Capitol, Sojourner Truth, we understand the importance of not only being first but also being first in excellence.
The National Congress of Black Women, Inc. is profoundly proud to support the nomination of Federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court. As the first African-American woman to be nominated to the highest court in the United States, Judge Brown Jackson, a brilliant legal mind and judge, brings a long and esteemed record of service and sterling character to the courts as a Trial Court Judge, District Court Judge and currently as a Federal Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals. We call upon the U.S. Senate to vote quickly and unanimously for this historic First appointment of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court.
We are asking our members, friends and supporters to call their U.S. Senators immediately to request their support for confirming Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
