AAFE Students Share How They've Been Inspired by the Confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson
Sasha Mitchell 5th Grade Piedmont Ave Elementary School
- It is amazing because it is a change! She is a black woman leader who will probably make good decisions.
Ziah Smith 4th Grade Piedmont Ave Elementary School
- A really cool and amazing opportunity. She will make good judgments for the sake of all people.
Marily Maldonado-Maya 5th Grade Piedmont Ave Elementary School
- I think it is about time. It has been mostly white men making the decision for our country and it is time for a change. They tried to see how smart she was and she showed them.
Nafissatou Ndiaye 4th Grade Piedmont Ave Elementary School
- I am super happy to have an African American female judge. I hope we get to know more about her. I hope there will be more rights and justice, especially for Black women.
