GROW Greatness Reached over Oppression through Wisdom
…”and in the poetic words of Dr. Maya Angelou, I do so now, while "bringing the gifts...my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave."
So as I take on this new role, I strongly believe that this is a moment in which all Americans can take great pride.
We have come a long way toward perfecting our union
In my family, it took just one generation to go from segregation to the Supreme Court of the United States
And it is an honor -- the honor of a lifetime -- for me to have this chance to join the Court, to promote the rule of law at the highest level, and to do my part to carry our shared project of democracy and equal justice under law forward, into the future.
Thank you, again, Mr. President and members of the Senate for this incredible honor.”
