“I came up with the name ‘The Black Lady Sketch Show’ when I created the series because I didn’t want there to be any confusion about what people were watching,” says Robin. “Then we changed it to ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ so that we didn’t single ourselves out as the only one. That simple change to “A” means that we’re one of possibly many black lady sketch shows, which would be a dream come true!”⁣

The best part of #ABLSS for Robin? “Working with all these amazing black women,” she says. “Writers, our director, our cast, our guest stars… and of course, (pictured left) Issa Rae (@issarae).” #ShareBlackStories

“Growing up in a multicultural environment has made my vision of the world plural. I don’t see one kind of person, but many stories — and they are worthy to share. My goal as an artist engaged in the anti-racist movement is to draw joyful moments to spread good vibes.” #ShareBlackStories⁣
