Mzansi comedian Trevor Noah has reached another milestone. It wasn’t long that it was announced his book is being turned into a movie.Now his famous book “Born a Crime” has been included in the American schools’ curriculum.
In a recent interview with Los Angeles Times, it was revealed that his book was included in the curriculum of schools in Newark, New Jersey.Trevor Noah, in his interview, revealed that the achievement “is quite a jump.”“To go from a kid who was always in trouble for something or other, to now have my book being taught in school is quite a jump,” he said.“I don’t think the book is a product of myself, but rather me telling a story comprised of many stories.“Part of it is South Africa’s story, part of it is my family’s story, my mother’s story, the lessons she taught me.
”Trevor also said that the lessons South Africa learned in apartheid are stories that apply to the world.“You do see vestiges of that in America today. It’s an easy story to understand because South Africa’s racism was so blatant and so unavoidable,” he said.“I think it’s a nice place to learn how to have conversations on a topic that has become very fraught with political landmines everywhere you go.”“It’s most beautiful to me because of why they’re using the book,” he also said
