Title: Too Black, Too Strong

Page Count/Review Word Count: 88
Too Black, Too Strong is a relatively new book of Zephaniah’s poetry, and I’d probably say that it’s one of my favourites. In it, Zephaniah examines some issues which are pretty typical of his work – race, equality and politics. Interestingly enough, it was written while working with barristers on the Stephen Lawrence case, a black British man who was murdered in a race hate attack.
