This Week in South Florida: Yolanda Cash Jackson

Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson has already made history, and with a South Florida angle.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson has already made history, and with a South Florida angle.

This week’s senate hearings for the judge who could be the first Black woman to sit on the nation’s highest court were riveting for a lot of reasons.

There were watch parties around the county by the Black Women’s Leadership Collective, including one locally in Opa-lock attended by a who’s who of Miami-Dade’s most active and engaged Black women leaders.

Among them, the organizer, Yolanda Cash Jackson, a government law attorney active in a roster of civic and charitable organizations.

She joined This Week in South Florida hosts Michael Putney and Glenna Milberg, and their discussion can be seen at the top of this page.
