I met Don Tate at Book Expo America #bea15. He wrote The Remarkable Story of George Moses Horton Poet, along with many other historical stories for young people. Being very gracious, he signed one copy for young author Imon Neveah and another for The Chiles Academy.
Don Tate writes important stories for young people. The blurb about his book, Poet, says: “In the nineteenth century, North Carolina slave George Moses Horton taught himself to read and earned money to purchase his time away from his master though not his freedom. Horton became the first African American to be published in the South, protesting slavery in the form of verse.”
