The Statehouse Report interviewed Danielle Vinson, professor of politics and international affairs, for a story about the appointment of U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. Vinson said that for more than a century Black women have “played prominent roles in winning voting rights for women and racial minorities nationally and desegregating schools and other institutions in South Carolina and around the country. It’s only right that an African American woman has finally ascended to the bench that is responsible for protecting those rights and our Constitution into the future. It’s also important for girls and young women to see themselves in these roles. It’s easier to become something when you see it really is possible.”

The story also ran in The Charleston City Paper.
