Poet, novelist and playwright Benjamin Zephaniah was born on 15 April He grew up in Jamaica and the Handsworth district of Birmingham, England, leaving school at

He was born in Birmingham, England on 15 April Let me show you more facts about Zephaniah below:. He was raised by his parents in Handsworth district of Birmingham. Zephaniah decided to leave the school when he was 13 because he could not write or even read. He was a dyslexic.

I have seven brothers and sisters including a twin sister and we grew up in Birmingham. Our early life was really poor - we had to share a tin bath and an outside toilet with the neighbours - but everyone else was really poor too. I only became aware of it when I started going to secondary school and noticed that some of us got free school meals. By that time my mother had separated from my father, and me and my mum basically went on the run. The other kids stayed with Dad and we lived in rooms while Mum did nursing and cleaning jobs. I am very close to my mother and I talk to her every day. She has gone through so much.
