Young and Outraged: New Orleans Civil Rights Movement Heavy-Hitters Reflect on the Experiences That Shaped Them and Changed New Orleans
It was an isolating experience to be the first black undergraduate enrolled at Louisiana State University.
The year was 1953 and Alexander P. Tureaud Jr., who was assigned to an un-airconditioned dormitory under Tiger Stadium, says he frequently found himself commiserating with Mike the Tiger over their shared captivity. Tureaud's father, an attorney for the NAACP, had filed a lawsuit to enable his son to attend the university, which appeared to offer the best education at the time.
"It was the worst experience I ever had," he remembered at the University of New Orleans Sunday, March 11, when he shared a roundtable with two other heavy-hitters of the Louisiana civil rights movement. His statements came on the final day of "Making New Orleans Home: A Tricentennial Symposium," a four-day, public event that brought together journalists, historians, authors and musicians to explore the city's evolution as a home to a diverse people.
Beside Tureaud were Raphael Cassimere Jr., UNO professor emeritus of history who received his bachelor's and master's degrees from UNO, and Doratha "Dodie" Smith-Simmons, who became active with the NAACP Youth Council and the New Orleans Congress of Racial Equality when she was a teenager.
