The Life and Rhymes of Benjamin Zephaniah: The Autobiography

 

by Laila Benhaida; Trainee Archivist

The opening page to this book is a dedication to himself ‘there was a time when I thought I wouldn’t live to see thirty, I doubled that and now I’m sixty, well done Rastaman, you’re a survivor.  A black survivor.’   It is only when you read his journey you realise he truly is.
