A Miami-Dade street portion is being renamed to honor the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. County Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution dubbing part of Eureka Drive “Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Street.”
The section is south of Palmetto Senior High, Jackson’s alma mater, and near her parents’ home.
“The representation this Justice signifies is not only for women like me,” said sponsor Danielle Cohen Higgins, the only Black woman now on the Commission. “It’s for my daughters and our daughters.”
Commissioners also OK’d another street renaming after Barbara Carey-Shuler, the first Black woman to serve on the County Commission.
