Politicians, celebs, and people from all over the country penned touching messages after Judge Jackson's official confirmation, with former First Lady Michelle Obama tweeting, "I was so moved to see Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson confirmed this afternoon. Like so many of you, I can't help but feel a sense of pride — a sense of joy — to know that this deserving, accomplished Black woman will be a part of the highest court in the land."
"Wow! U.S. Supreme Court Justice #KetanjiBrownJackson What a powerful moment in the history of this nation. What a reminder that change can come. Let's embrace it and keep working for true peace," wrote Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr.
"Congratulations Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson!!! You have made history!" Viola Davis tweeted, while Kerry Washington chimed in with, "KETANJI BROWN JACKSON. That is all. #InKBJWeTrust."
Hillary Clinton also wrote a touching tribute to Judge Jackson, writing, "Congratulations to Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman and first public defender on the Supreme Court. Without the commitment of voters and organizers to take back the Senate and White House, this historic moment might not have happened. Well done. Onward."
"Judge Jackson's confirmation was a historic moment for our nation," President Biden added in a tweet of his own. "We've taken another step toward making our highest court reflect the diversity of America. She will be an incredible Justice, and I was honored to share this moment with her."
