The history of Black women judges in America
US President Joe Biden says he'll deliver on his campaign pledge to nominate a Black woman to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer.
Good opportunity to review the (short) history of Black women on the bench in America. Ian Bremmer takes a look back on GZERO World.
Jane Brolin became the first state judge in 1939 in New York. But the one who really laid the groundwork for others to follow was Constance Baker Motley, appointed in 1966 as the first federal judge.
Motley inspired many other Black women, including those on Biden's SCOTUS shortlist.
