Video Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation makes her the first Black woman to be elevated to the nation’s highest court.

Overcoming a concerted effort by conservative Republicans to derail her nomination, Judge Jackson was confirmed on a 53-to-47 vote, with three Republicans joining all 50 members of the Democratic caucus in backing her.

The vote was a rejection of Republican attempts to paint her as a liberal extremist who has coddled criminals.

“Even in the darkest times, there are bright lights,” Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the majority leader, said on the Senate floor.

At the White House, Mr. Biden and Judge Jackson watched the vote together from the Roosevelt Room.
