Raised just outside Cincinnati, in the rural community of Rossmoyne, Ohio, Aaron Belford Thompson, Priscilla Jane Thompson, and Clara Ann Thompson wrote poetry that addressed Black American life in the early twentieth century. In their time, they were hailed as literary celebrities in the Cincinnati and Indianapolis Black communities, but they never managed to attain mainstream attention. This book presents three of their poetry collections-Aaron's Harvest of Thoughts, Priscilla's Gleanings of Quiet Hours, and Clara's Songs from the Wayside, all initially published in 1907-1908-as a snapshot into the artistic and political interests of this talented family of poets.
