This Igniting Change Radio Show on Tuesday, March 22, 2022, entitled “Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson and This Moment In History Will Not Be Denied! ” will feature Radio Show Co-Hosts and Transformative Justice Coalition (TJC) Co-Leaders Attorneys Barbara Arnwine and Daryl Jones in discussion with Attorney Kim Tignor and Attorney Tanya Clay House, leaders in the movement to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
The entirety of the show will be devoted to sharing with our national audience perspectives and insights on the confirmation hearing for Judge Kentaji Brown Jackson which started on Monday, March 21st and is scheduled to end on Thursday, March 24th.
On February 25, 2022, President Joseph Biden, fulfilling a pledge made during his candidacy for office, announced the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first Black woman to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Judge Brown Jackson would replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer for whom she had clerked and considers a mentor. African American women, women in general, youth, and so many have been inspired by this nomination. Her graceful acceptance speech at the nomination announcement won the hearts of many.
However, immediately upon this nomination, there were attacks from opponents on a variety of seemingly frivolous points such as her being “over qualified”, “too elite as a double Harvard graduate”, “an affirmative action candidate”, “sympathetic to criminals and terrorists” and “soft on crime.” Over the weeks, most of these arguments have shriveled up. But on the eve of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing a new criticism was lobbed by Sen. Josh Hawley attempting to portray Judge Brown Jackson as too lenient on child pornographers. During Monday’s hearing, dubious and bizarre attacks were made by Senator Marsha Blackburn alleging Judge Brown Jackson is a proponent of “White privilege”, Critical Race Theory and transgender persons.
Our distinguished and expert guests will provide special insights into this urgent work at the national level. On Sunday before the confirmation hearing started, She Will Rise, a national organization of Black women committed to the nomination and confirmation of a Black woman to the Supreme Court, the National Women’s Law Center, and the Black Women’s Law Center held a spirited Affirmation Brunch to celebrate the progress made to date and to prepare for the hearing. That Monday there was a rally held at the Supreme Court building. The Rally was also celebratory and an affirmation to achieve a successful confirmation, despite the attempted disruptive action of counter protestors.
We expect some fireworks during the questioning of Judge Brown Jackson on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Our show will cover this historic nomination.
These are the issues we will cover during this show.

The topic of our show is “Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson and This Moment in History Will Not Be Denied!” On Monday, March 21st, the US Senate Judiciary Committee commenced its hearing on the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to become and Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States.
The opening day of the hearing was a combination of expressions of joy, pride, anger, grievance, and disputation. Although, there were repeated utterances regarding a commitment to “civil” and “dignified” hearing, there was a harsh partisan tone to the entire hearing. Accusations about Judge Brown Jackson’s record made by some of the Senators in their opening statements, besides being bizarre and already debunked, were also derogatory, paternalistic and disrespectfully untrue.
Yet, the highlight of the hearing was the soulful introduction of the Judge Brown Jackson and her own beautiful and very moving personal recounting of her life long journey to the Court.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, there will be extensive questioning by the Senators. Thursday will consist of panels of experts in support and opposition to the nomination.
Tanya Clay House is one of the nation’s most prominent voting rights and civil rights attorneys. She has long advocated for a Black woman to be nominated to the Supreme Court.
Kim Tignor is the Leader of She Will Rise, a national organization committed to the nomination and confirmation of a Black woman to the Supreme Court.
