The first time I became aware of MrTate was by reading the Village Voice.I was fascinated with his ability
to use writing poetically-humorously-intellectually and have it fresh.After that introduction,I scoured the
remaining issues ,searching for anything he wrote.I have his books and continue to read them and use
them as resource.He is one of our griots and he will be missed.

I first encountered Greg Tate through the Guelph Jazz Festival. I've followed him on Facebook ever since and his essays have really helped broaden by understanding of race related issues. Thank you for the insight and for the music.

I have always enjoyed hearing Greg Tate's commentary. I first saw him in the documentary from Rage to Riches about Jean-Michel Basquait and, most recently, in The Summer of Soul. His important and vibrant voice will be deeply missed. My most sincere condolences to his family and friends. Thankful that he shared his voice with us during his lifetime. RIP.
