BORN A CRIME| TREVOR NOAH
Favorite Quote:“If you're Native American and you pray to the wolves, you're a savage. If you're African and you pray to your ancestors, you're a primitive. But when white people pray to a guy who turns water into wine, well, that's just common sense.” ― Trevor Noah, Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood
What Made Me Love This Book: Laughing out loud, tear-jerking moments, sympathy and many more emotions were felt while reading this book. Oh God where do I began, I found out about this book on Bill Gates blog, and he had nothing but great things to say about Trevor Noah.
Born during apartheid in South Africa he shares his journey through these times. Being biracial he gives you a different perspective on the issue, the effect that it had on his life, how he learned to fit in and get accepted by both ethnicities. If you're interested in learning about how discrimination and segregation can influence the lives of individuals, this book will do just that.
