The first black woman on the U.S. Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, was inaugurated Friday in a ceremony in Washington attended by U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, AFP reported.

Jackson, who was nominated to the Supreme Court by Biden, will be part of the minority on the body that decides some of the most important social and legal issues in the United States.

But the 52-year-old woman could find herself largely bound by a conservative majority of six justices, three of whom were appointed by Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump.

Jackson was chosen in late February by Democrat Biden, who during his campaign promised to appoint the first African-American woman to the nation's highest judicial body.

She replaced Justice Stephen Breyer, 84, who has retired.

The 2022/2023 Supreme Court session is scheduled to begin Monday.
