This collection of her poems is drawn from ten volumes published between 1854 and 1901.

Their main issues are oppression, Christianity, and social and moral reform. Consolidating the oral tradition and the ballad form, and merging dramatic details and imagery with a strong political and racial awareness, Harpers poetry represented a distinctly Afro-American discourse that was to inspire generations of black writers.
