After a contentious race, the 2017 runoff for mayor of New Orleans came down to two candidates: Desiree Charbonnet and LaToya Cantrell, two very different black women. The winner of this election would take office as the first female mayor of New Orleans and the city's fourth black mayor. Through news footage, campaign advertisements and archival audio and video, All Skinfolk Ain't Kinfolk is the unprecedented story of this mayoral runoff told through the eyes of black women living in this city. LOCAL ANGLES: Trailblazing women, women in politics, 2020 elections, New Orleans / Louisiana stations, Tulane professor, Black Public Media funding, New Orleans-based director, woman director.
