Capitol Heel Briefing #2: Another Black Woman In Sensible Black Heels👠 Will Take Her Place in History

Joe Biden will select the nation's first black woman to be on the Supreme Court. And she'll be wearing sensible heels.

POTUS Joe Biden and Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer appeared together Thursday at the White House to formally announce Breyer’s retirement. President Biden affirmed his intention to nominate the first Black woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court, with the intention to announce his nominee before the end of February, after consulting with both Democratic and Republican senators. Biden noted that VP Kamala Harris will play a key role in the consulting process. While several distinguished potential prospects have been mentioned in news media, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson may have the inside track, as she once served as a clerk for Breyer and was confirmed to the D. C. Circuit Court of Appeals with bipartisan support. But speculation also centered on Leondra R. Kruger, a justice on the California Supreme Court, as well as on J. Michelle Childs, a Federal District Court Judge in South Carolina that Biden has recently nominated for a judgeship on a federal appeals court. Regardless of which of these are nominated to the Supreme Court, history will be made.

Who will President Joe Biden choose to be the nation's first black woman Supreme Court judge.
