What is Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Peace Corps connection?
What Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, a top contender for Biden Supreme Court pick, has revealed about her personal side.
She has recounted in a 2017 speech that her parents, wanting to show pride in their African ancestry, asked her aunt, who was then in the Peace Corps in Africa, for a list of African girl names. Taking one of her suggestions, Jackson’s parents named her Ketanji Onyika, which she said they were told translates to”lovely one.”

What a beautiful story!
Tell us more about her aunt, please,
it is not official and it may be wrong, but there are rumors that President Biden has chosen her for the Supreme Court.
What country in Africa?
Please answer: in which African country did her aunt serve?
