(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, 20 MAR – The hearing at the Senate Justice Commission for Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first African American woman appointed by President Joe Biden to the Supreme Court, begins tomorrow.

The 51 / year old Harvard graduate will face strong opposition from Republicans who, even in recent days, have attacked her social media, questioning her long career. Attacks that the White House has defined “toxic and instrumental” reiterating her full support for the judge. However, the apparent compactness of the Democrats plays in her favor. Hearings include a candidate’s statement, testimony for or against the nomination, and questions from senators. In the end there is the vote of the commission. With Jackson, the internal balances at the Supreme Court are not destined to change: if she is confirmed she will in fact take the place of Stephen Breyer, nominated by Bill Clinton. Her entry into the nine sages however is a historic step because she is the first African American woman, the third black person named in the 233-year history of the Supreme Court, and raises the number of women who sit among the sages to four. for over two centuries, they have been a club solely and exclusively of white men.
