Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, has congratulated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on her confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has said in a release that the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States “is a moment of tremendous pride for the members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Black women everywhere. Her brilliant legal mind, sound judicial temperament, and remarkable work ethic are greatly needed on the nation’s highest court at this critical moment in history”.

On February 25, 2022, President Joe Biden nominated Jackson to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, filling the vacancy created by Breyer’s retirement.

The statement said: “As one of the nation’s pre-eminent service-based sororities. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated proudly supports president Joe Biden’s nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve as the first black woman associate justice on the United States Supreme Court.”

It lauds her “extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, integrity and commitment”. The statement also stresses the quality of Brown Jackson’s qualifications.

“As a two-time Harvard University graduate, Judge Jackson is a seasoned and skilled jurist with a wide range of judicial experience,” the statement added.

However, it’s been widely reported that Judge Jackson is not part of any sorority society.

This is despite the fact that Sorority sisters were among those who attended her confirmation hearing.

Ketanji Jackson attended Harvard University for college and law school, where she served as an editor on the Harvard Law Review.

Ketanji Jackson began her legal career with three clerkships, including one with U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.

Prior to her elevation to an appellate court, from 2013 to 2021, she served as a district judge for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Ketanji Jackson was also vice chair of the United States Sentencing Commission from 2010 to 2014. Since 2016, she has been a member of the Harvard Board of Overseers.
