Saluting The #BlackGirlMagic Of Late-Night

For far too long, a black woman’s voice has been absent in the late-night television world.  However, some major strides have been made in recent years, and while more progress needs to be made, these three women are leading the way in #BlackGirlMagic in the late-night landscape.


Robin Thede

Thede was head writer on The Queen Latifah Show and the taken-from-us-too-soon The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.  She’s now hosting BET’s The Rundown with Robin Thede, and if her show isn’t already part of your late-night diet, change your habits right now!  Her rundown on the week in news is informative AND hilarious.  Plus, she peppers in brilliant spoofs like this trailer for “On The Edge Of Glory.”


Side note:  This was her promo for her first season.  Seriously…if this and the video above doesn’t make you want to tune in to The Rundown, we don’t know what will!
