We tell people to follow their dreams, but you can only dream of what you can imagine, and, depending on where you come from, your imagination can be quite limited.

Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood (2016) is the memoir of South African comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah. Noah was born during apartheid to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, a relationship which was punishable by five years in prison.  From a childhood being hidden from the government by his mother who could take him away, to a mischievous and adventurous post-apartheid young adulthood, Noah’s exceptional writing tells the story of the struggle to live in a world where he should have never existed.

Registration is required and will open soon.  Five free copies of the book will be able on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please note if you claim a free book and do not attend the discussion session, you will not be allowed to claim a free book in the future.  Books will only be mailed to Delaware addresses.


Program Description

From now until September 2022, Delaware Humanities will be hosting events as part of the national A More Perfect Union initiative.  The goals of A More Perfect Union are to offer resources, promote civil discourse, and increase our understanding of our government systems and history to better participate in civic life. Be sure to return to this website, sign up for our email list, and/or follow us social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to learn more about upcoming events.  Delaware Humanities will kick off our programming with our winter book discussions, beginning on December 8. Does A More Perfect Union sound like an initiative in which your organization would like to get involved?  We are always looking for partners and would love to hear from you!
