InfoSenator Horace Tate is the first African-American to earn a doctorate from the University of Kentucky. A native of Elberton, Georgia, he earned a B.S. degree from Fort Valley State College in Fort Valley, Georgia. Even before he earned his degree from the University of Kentucky, Tate had already served as a teacher and high school principal in his home state from 1943-1959. In that year, he was appointed as an associate professor of education at Fort Valley State College. For 39 years, he worked in educational service, rising through the leadership ranks at the Georgia Teachers and Education Association.

His political career includes being the first African-American candidate to seek the office of Mayor of Atlanta in 1969. In that same year, he served as Director of the National Education Association. Tate was elected to the Georgia State Senate in 1974. He served as vice-chair of a state advisory committee to President Richard M. Nixon and, in 1978, was appointed to a term on the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science under President Jimmy Carter. He has been a Georgia delegate to the National Democratic Convention in 1972, '76, '80, '88 and '92.
