Praise For Celeste's Harlem Renaissance…
"Tate has created a fully realized heroine....Readers will likely happily accompany Celeste on her journey."
"Complex, distinctive, and well developed. Celeste's wide-eyed observations...pull readers in."

"Readers will connect with [Celeste's] strong, regional voice. Both sobering and inspiring, Tate's novel is a moving portrait of growing up black and female in 1920s America."
"Tate has an eye, and an ear, for the ambience of the era. Celeste and her friends and family are well-conceived individuals, both real and imagined....Absorbing."
"[Tate] draws her characters with charming humor and multidimensional candor."
