What a Black Woman Will Bring to the Supreme Court

President Joe Biden has pledged to appoint a Black woman to the Supreme Court, and a seat will open up when Justice Stephen Breyer retires. Having a more diverse court will help with key decisions coming up on issues like affirmative action, says defense attorney and former prosecutor Bernarda Villalona. “With diversity, you bring ideas that another person may not have because they haven’t walked in your shoes,” she said.
