Too Black Too Strong
Publisher: Bloodaxe Books
Too Black, Too Strong is Benjamin Zephaniah's latest collection from Bloodaxe, addressing the struggles of black Britain more forcefully than all his previous books. It includes poems written while working with Michael Mansfield QC and other Tooks barristers on the Stephen Lawrence case and other high profile political trials. Zephaniah is a poet who won't stay silent, who doesn't pull any punches, writing out of a sense of urgency and a commitment to social justice.
