Pres. Biden fulfilled a campaign promise to nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court this year by choosing Kentanji Brown Jackson to replace outgoing justice Stephen Breyer. The nation then watched as Jackson sat through aggressive questioning during her confirmation hearings.  Why are we still celebrating firsts such as Jackson’s nomination?  This week on Connect the Dots, we’re joined by Dr. Lindsey, who is also the author of Colored No More: Reinventing Black Womanhood in Washington D.C. We’re also joined by professor Rory Little of the UC Hastings College of Law in San Francisco. We’ll discuss Jackson’s nomination, her confirmation hearings and what it all reveals about representation in our federal government.
