    Our inspirational coffee mug features the profile of a Black woman on both sides with the word, "Persevere" in the center. It has a black interior, rim and handle that adds a striking contrast to the pink, orange and yellow watercolor background.

    This design was inspired by no less than Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. During her Supreme Court confirmation hearing, I was moved by the story she told when she was asked what advice she would give to young people. She recalled how she had a “tough” time adjusting to Harvard University when she first arrived, having come from Miami as a public school student and being surrounded by many others who had a prep school background at the Ivy League school. As a freshman, she was walking on the campus one evening, feeling terribly lonely and out of place when a Black woman, a complete stranger, approached her. No conversation was necessary; the woman no doubt understood the challenges a young Ketanji was facing. She offered advice in the form of but one word: "Persevere". And so Ketanji did. She finished Harvard University, Harvard Law, and went on to a stellar career as law clerk, public defender, district court and federal appeals court judge. Despite all the challenges, she persevered.

    Judge Brown Jackson is no doubt an incredible role model for girls and women of all ages and ethnicities.

    This makes a great motivational gift for friends, colleagues, clients, and family members. Not only is it pretty and meaningful, the mug can hold 11 fluid ounces and is both dishwasher and microwave safe.
