Justice Ketanji: The Story of US Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson (Hardcover)
Discover the rise of Ketanji Brown Jackson, from a young girl growing up in Florida to the first Black woman to be confirmed to the United States Supreme Court.
Ketanji Brown Jackson knew from the very beginning that “You can do anything. You can be anything.” Driven by those powerful words and her parents' love, Ketanji refused to let naysayers stop her from rising to the top, whether it was participating in her high school debate team, applying to her dream college, or excelling at Harvard. Her perseverance and her wits led her to become the first Black female U.S. District Judge and eventually the first Black female Supreme Court Justice. Ketanji’s remarkable journey proves how she is a Justice for all.
