Trevor Noah - Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood — at Sixth & I

Upcoming Event
Saturday, November 19, 2016 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Host of The Daily Show, Noah gained an international audience at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his furiously energetic and hilarious one-man show, The Racist. Now he looks back over the experiences that have fueled his career, charting his coming-of-age in South Africa. Born to a white, Swiss-German father and a black Xhosa mother, Noah was, under apartheid, illegal; after apartheid, as the country came to grips with its past and the chaos of its future, he developed a keen eye for the absurdities of politics, race, and nationalism. If survival is the theme of his book, his mother, the consummate survivor, is its heart, and Noah’s depictions of her fierce Christianity, her savvy hustling, and her determination are as moving as they are funny.

Noah will be in conversation with New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. 

This event will not include a public signing; all books will be pre-signed by Noah.
