Malden Reads Selects Trevor Noah’s “Born a Crime” for 11th Year Book

In Born a Crime, Trevor Noah, the popular comedian and host of the cable TV show “The Daily Show,” recounts his childhood growing up in South Africa, the son of a white father and a Black mother. At the time, such a union was punishable by five years in prison in apartheid South Africa, so Noah’s very existence was “crime.”

Noah tells his story, which ranges from the humorous to the traumatic, with his cutting wit and incisive perspective. At times both poignant and outrageous, Noah deals with the intersection of his life and the history of a country reckoning with deep-seated racism and finds a parallel here to the United States.

Where I Am From Storytelling Workshop (Session 1) December 8 – 7:00 pm

 

What is your story? Where do you come from?

“Where are you from?” is a question that is often asked and usually replied to with a geographic location.

Join us for an evening of personal storytelling from a diverse group of Malden community members.
Created in a workshop led by CD Collins in collaboration with MATV/UMA and Malden Reads, participants will share their “Where I’m From” poetry, recalling the places, memories, sensations, feelings, and events that made each person who they are.
Featuring special storyteller, instructor, and author CD Collins! (www.cdcollins.com)
