Review: Born a Crime

Born a Crime
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is not your usual celebrity memoir. Noah writes about race, education, domestic violence, and the near impossibility of improving one’s life when the deck is truly stacked against you. Trump’s new education secretary should read Noah’s bits about separate school systems for blacks and whites under apartheid. There’s so much in here that, unfortunately, relates on-point to what we are experiencing and fearing here in America right now. I wasn’t expecting this to be an important read, but it is. I’ll be recommending it to many people.
