Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson says she has “a seat at the table now and I’m ready to work,” leaning into her history-making role as the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. Jackson spoke Friday at the Library of Congress several hours after she made her first appearance on the Supreme Court bench in a brief ceremony that was attended by President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and their spouses. Jackson was frequently interrupted by applause at the event at the library. She says people regard her with a profound sense of pride, adding, “They’re saying to me in essence, ‘You go, girl.”’
