Born a Crime is The Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s fast-paced, touching, and humorous memoir about his boyhood days in South Africa. In this class, we will explore Trevor Noah’s witty and poignant account of his extraordinary and subversive childhood, shaped by the absurdities of apartheid, in the townships and suburbs of Johannesburg. Born a Crime is a must-read; not just because it is a remarkable personal story of survival laced with Noah’s characteristic wit, but also because it is a vivid and vital account of the tumultuous dying days of apartheid.
