Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, with President Biden calling her "one of the nation's brightest legal minds". Ms Jackson, 51, will be the first black woman to serve in the court's 233-year history and only the third African American, replacing liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer when he retires at the end of the court's term in June. She has two degrees from Harvard. Before coming president, Biden first promised to nominate a black woman to the top court two years ago while campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination.
