Over Labor Day weekend, urban youth of the Compton and Oakland
communities of California will have the opportunity to flex their tech
muscles at the “We Are Code” two-day hackathon event designed to promote
awareness and innovation.
Amid controversy over not hiring enough African American comedians on
the show, NBC's iconic Saturday Night Live variety show has added Sasheer Zamata to its 2014
lineup. Over the past 38 years since the show began, it has only had
four African American women onboard including the hilarious Maya Rudolph
who left in 2007.
