This past Saturday, #NewOrleans city council member #LaToyaCantrell won a historic election!

She has been elected as the city’s first female mayor and will succeed #MitchLandrieu. “Almost 300 years, my friends. And New Orleans, we’re still making history,” she said in front of a cheering crowd.

Cantrell led the polls throughout her campaign leaving her opponent judge Desiree Charbonnet no choice but to concede.

Next year marks the 300-year anniversary of the City of New Orleans which makes this win that much more sweet!

Congratulations and show off all that black girl magic!!
