SNL Adds Sasheer Zamata, First Black Female Cast Member in Years | Variety

Bout damn time!

The thesp will be “SNL’s” first black female cast member since Maya Rudolph departed in 2007. “SNL” and Lorne Michaels came under fire in late 2013 over the cast’s lack of diversity, and the series poked fun at its own controversy during its opening seg when Kerry Washington hosted “SNL” in November.

News broke at the end of the year that “SNL” was holding auditions specifically to find black female cast members to join the program in 2014.
