  4. I just read through this today (3/2024) along with the full letter from BU LAW Dean Angela Onwuachi-Willig’s letter. It has me overwhelmed with relief that there are so many warm, intelligent black women sending up this kind of strong support. Obviously Ms. Jackson was the right pick and we have only just begun to experience that. But in these times of uncertainty.. as the highest court seems to tremble and falter, I am glad to see there are many who still know how to lay solid foundations one brick at a time. We have a dark time ahead of us and I’m very glad Ms. Jackson will have her light to shine.

    Thank you all for your efforts. Thank you .
