Songs for the People is an SATB setting of a poem by the African-American poet, novelist and teacher, Frances E.W. Harper (1825-1911). Harper's parents were freed slaves, and Harper devoted much of her life to the abolitionist movement and to what she called "a brighter day" - civil rights for African-Americans and women. Her poem Songs for the People illustrates her message of positive social change and foreshadows the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
