Benjamin Zephaniah

Benjamin Zephaniah is a British writer and Dub poet whose work often contains the language and rhythms of his Jamaican heritage.

Born in Birmingham, Zephaniah moved to London in 1980 and his debut poetry collection was published the same year. He became a prolific and highly acclaimed performance poet, whose work frequently touched on themes of political injustice, releasing more volumes of vibrant and accessible ‘street poetry’ in the late 80s and early 90s. His first collection of verse for children, Talking Turkeys, came out in 1995 and went into emergency reprint due to its unexpected success, whilst his debut Young Adult novel Face was published to critical acclaim four years later.

A committed Rastafarian, vegan and political activist, he has also written plays, acted in film and television productions and recorded numerous reggae records.
