Trevor Noah grew up in Soweto, South Africa during apartheid. Black people lived in separate areas from white people. They had different rules. They were segregated. This was particularly tough for him, because he grew up in a mixed family, with him being the mixed one.
“My mother is a black woman, Xhosa woman, from South Africa. My father is Swiss from Switzerland and a white man. They got together during apartheid, which was against the law, and they had me. That’s really where our journey began, because we were a family that couldn’t be together. We were a family that was, for all intents and purposes, a crime. Me being born from my mother was me being born a crime.” – Trevor said.
