In honor of President Joe Biden's Supreme Court nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the Duchess of Sussex wrote an essay with attorney and educator Anita Hill to celebrate the history-making feat, which she claims paves the way for more Black women to be represented at the highest level of a judicial system.

In the Cross Hall of the White House on Friday, Biden introduced Jackson, 51, a circuit judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, as his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Town and Country reported.

"For the millions of young women who will rightfully find inspiration from this moment, let's remind ourselves that Black achievement is something that exists not just today or yesterday, and not just in moments of celebration, but as a fabric woven into the entire chronicle of the American story,” part of Meghan’s piece reads.

According to the Independent, Jackson served as a public defender and a District Judge for the District of Columbia from 2013 to 2021, after being appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2012.

Meghan, 40, daughter of Black woman Doria Ragland and White American Thomas Markle, has been outspoken in acknowledging her biracial identity. During Meghan and her husband Prince Harry's royal tour of South Africa in 2019, she would also proudly share her life as a woman of color.

"On one personal note, may I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of the royal family, I want you to know that for me, I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color, and as your sister," she told the cheering crowd. "I am here with you, and I am here for you.”

Notably, in 2015, Markle wrote for Elle, "While my mixed heritage may have created a gray area surrounding my self-identification, keeping me with a foot on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that.”

“To say who I am, to share where I'm from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident mixed-race woman,” she added per People.
