Description

Illustrated with photographs and decorations, the majority of poems in this book had been previously published. However, Dunbar did include four new poems: "The Plantation Child's Lullaby," "Blue," "Charity," and "Curiosity." The title poem, "Li'L' Gal," was later recorded as a vocal performance by internationally known concert singer, Paul Robeson.
