Danitra Vance and Sasheer Zamata

Three decades have passed between these two comedians' stints on SNL, but the number of Black female cast members between Vance and Zamata could be counted on one hand. All the more reason these two SNL alums — Vance was on the show from 1985-86 and Zamata joined in January 2014 — both occupy a place in comedy history.
