Osbey's first book of poetry, Ceremony for Minneconjoux, uses the many voices of black women of New Orleans to weave what Mary A. McCay in American Women Writers called "a tapestry of black New Orleans life." These women, whom Osbey calls "madhouse women," reflect their African backgrounds but also the influences of the Spanish and French cultures so prevalent in New Orleans. The title character, "minneconjoux," for example, speaks of her Indian heritage.
