Here's some more information on how Deval came to Massachusetts.
We're lucky to have him.
No more Mitt!


Deval Patrick was born on Chicago's South Side in 1956, into an
African-American family living on welfare and residing in a one-bedroom
apartment. His father Pat Patrick, a member of jazz musician Sun Ra's band,
left his wife Emily, son Deval, and daughter Rhonda in order to play music
in New York City. 
While in middle school, one of Deval's teachers referred Deval to A Better
Chance, a national non-profit organization for identifying, recruiting and
developing leaders among academically gifted students of color, which
enabled him to attend Milton Academy in Milton, Massachusetts.
Patrick graduated from Milton Academy in 1974 and from Harvard University in
1978. He then spent a year working with the United Nations in Africa. In
1979, Patrick returned to the United States and enrolled at Harvard Law
School. While in law school, Patrick was elected president of the Legal Aid
Bureau, where he first worked defending poor families in Middlesex County,
Massachusetts
