Born a Crime H/Cover
Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid poverty to becoming one of the biggest names in comedy began with a crime: his birth.
Born to a Black Xhosa mother and a white Swiss father at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison, Trevor was kept indoors for most of his early life, hiding from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away.
Finally liberated by the fall of apartheid, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure into the dangers and opportunities of a new South Africa.
