Benjamin Zephaniah's six best books

Benjamin Zephaniah is a well-known British poet.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One book on his list:
Darwin’s Sacred Cause: How a Hatred of Slavery Shaped Darwin’s Views on Human Evolution
by Adrian Desmond and James Moore

This is special because while everyone knows about Darwin very few people know about the anti-slavery stance he took in his life. He was years ahead of his time in this respect.
Read about the other titles on Zephaniah's list.
