Synopsis

A radical poet, political visionary and popular reggae artist, Benjamin Zephaniah has travelled the world promoting peace, humanitarianism and animal welfare – concerns prominent in his writing too. With new autobiography The Life and Rhymes of Benjamin Zephaniah, he tells the story of his life and the issues that propel his work. As he shares his tale with audiences today we ask: what drives this verse superstar now?
