A day after Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson blasted Black women for not being funny enough for the show, we’ve learned that Kerry Washington will become the ninth Black woman to host the sketch comedy on November 2.

Previous Black female hosts include Queen Latifah, who took over hosting duties twice, Cicely Tyson, Halle Berry, Oprah Winfrey, Rosario Dawson, Gabourey Sidibe and former cast member Maya Rudolph.

Enimem is scheduled to be the musical guest.

I don’t know about you, but we’re sure excited!
