Dub Poet Benjamin Zephaniah has some impressive strings to his bow; writer, author, musician and professor of Humanities and Arts at Brunel University, to name a few. What’s even more impressive is that he managed this all without ever going to university, college or even finishing high school. However far from being an ambassador for the university of life, Benjamin maintains that a formal education is the only path to a brighter future.
This episode takes us on a journey through some of the most influential times recent, politics, music and art, from the point of view of someone at the center of the action.
Here’s a great example of why Benjamin’s unpretentious poetry is so accessible.
