Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood

5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

This is a must read memoir! This books as been on my TBR list for a while and I honestly don't know why it took me so long to read but I'm so glad I finally did. Trevor Noah tackles such heavy topics in such a comical way only he can. Colonialism, Poverty, Race, White Privilege. Trevor was born to a white father and black mother during Apartheid in South Africa...he was a crime. Some of my favorite parts of his story are the ones about his mother. She was strong, fierce and fought against the rules in ways only she could. I highly recommend this. Physical book or audio doesn't matter but add it to you TBR asap!
