The Creole Son
In 1987, Andre Dupree was elected as a member of the Louisiana State
Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. According to a Louisiana
newspaper he was the youngest person ever elected to a major Louisiana
political office. As a 23 year old college student he won the election
by defeating a college president and the president of a powerful
teacher's union. Luck was on Andre's side when a jealous husband
attempted to assassinate the college president. Andre had been told to
accept his station in life with dignity. Creole kids never had much luck
anyway; poor New Orleans neighborhoods were quicksand, no way out. But
Andre had determination and tenacity, traits learned on New Orleans
streets. Andre's father worked as a maintenance electrician at Tulane
University. When Andre graduated from Tulane he delivered the
commencement address, his father was in the audience.
