Miami-Dade Commissioners on Thursday will consider renaming a roadway portion in the southern part of the county after Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Jackson, who was sworn in on June 30, is the first Black woman to ever serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
She grew up in Miami and graduated from Miami Palmetto Senior High School, which is five miles from the street in question.
“This Board recognizes Justice Jackson’s impact on this community and wishes to honor (her) groundbreaking ascension to the nation’s highest court,” the resolution sponsored by Danielle Cohen Higgins and co-sponsored by Sally Heyman said.
