June 3rd Human Rights Book Discussion: Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood

For our June book discussion (we skipped May), the Human Rights Book Discussion meetup group will discuss Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah.  This is Trevor Noah’s eloquent and touching account of growing up as the mixed-race child of a single mother during the twilight of Apartheid in South Africa, where his very birth “violated any number of laws, statutes and regulations” and it was dangerous for him to be seen in public with either his white father or his black mother. His mother taught him to use humor to cope with the tragedies and absurdities of life, and he used this knowledge to bridge the race gap and beat the odds.  The discussion will take place Sunday, June 3rd, at 3:30 pm at Panera Bread in Hillcrest, 1270 Cleveland.
