Synopsis

Benjamin Zephaniah Contemporary Black Achievers by Verna Allette Wilkins

Growing up poor and on the move, Benjamin Zephaniah didn't tap into his true potential until he had sunk into the depths of despair. His way with words, his mother's love and his strong sense of community helped him to overcome the obstacles in his path. The moving story of a man who informs and amuses people all over the world with his love of life and his rapping rhythms.
