The purpose of teaching this novel will be to give students an opportunity to read a multicultural text and explore their own cultural identities. Born A Crime is a memoir by Trevor Noah who was born to a South African mother and white European father during the time of apartheid. Because his existence was considered illegal, he grappled with his own identity as racial divides defined who he was and how he saw himself. His ultimate message to his young readers is that they have the power to define themselves despite how society views them. The reading of this memoir ultimately aims to teach our students important universal messages of love, hope and resistance. Through the book, students will be educated on the historical revolutionary changes in South Africa as apartheid came to an end, while discovering another culture. They will also have opportunities to think about how race and culture influences their own identities as well.
