    Trevor Noah Says He Grew Up In The Shadow Of A Giant - Full NPR Fresh Air Interview


    As the child of a black mother and a white father in apartheid-era South Africa, Daily Show host Trevor Noah was the living, breathing evidence that a crime had been committed.

    Under apartheid, interracial couples who had engaged in sexual relations could be punished with years-long prison sentences, and biracial children like Noah could be taken away from their parents. As a result, Noah spent much of his early life in hiding.

    He tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross, My grandmother kept me locked in the house when I was staying with the family in Soweto. ... If the police did show up ... it was a constant game of hide-and-seek.

    After apartheid ended in 1994, Noah and his mother faced new challenges, including his mother's relationship with an abusive alcoholic. Now Noah revisits his childhood with the new memoir, Born a Crime. It's the story of his life, but the comedian is clear about who the real star of the book is.

    I thought that I was the hero of my story, [but] in writing it I came to realize over time that my mom was the hero, Noah says. I was lucky enough to be in the shadow of a giant. My mom's magic dust sprinkled on me and I hope I have enough of it to be as brave as she was and continues to be.

    Toni Morrison interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air


    Now that she's in her mid-80s, celebrated author Toni Morrison feels aches, pains and regret.
    »»﴿───► See more on the Authors Playlist:

    Toni tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross, When I'm not creating or focusing on something I can imagine or invent, I think I go back over my life — I don't recommend this, by the way — and you pick up, 'Oh, what did you do that for? Why didn't you understand this?' Not just with children, as a parent, but with other people, with friends. ... It's not profound regret; it's just a wiping up of tiny little messes that you didn't recognize as mess when they were going on.

    Morrison, the first African-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature, says writing provides a big protection from her thoughts.

    Her latest novel, God Help the Child, follows an African-American woman who has no idea why she has given birth to such a dark-skinned baby. The mother, named Sweetness, is embarrassed by her daughter's darkness and wants to distance herself. The daughter, meanwhile, is scarred by not having her mother's love.

    Morrison says she wanted to separate color from race in her latest creation.

    Distinguishing color — light, black, in between — as the marker for race is really an error: It's socially constructed, it's culturally enforced and it has some advantages for certain people, she says. But this is really skin privilege — the ranking of color in terms of its closeness to white people or white-skinned people and its devaluation according to how dark one is and the impact that has on people who are dedicated to the privileges of certain levels of skin color.

    The novel explores those childhood wounds that leave a lasting mark into adulthood, and Morrison says it got her thinking about her own two sons. When they were young, she says she felt able and competent and she never thought she would hurt them in any way.

    Afterwards, I remember every error, every word that I spoke that was wrong or incontinent, every form of when I did not protect them properly, she says. Now that I'm 84, I remember everything as a mistake — and I regret everything. Now, mind you, one of them is now deceased, one of them is very successful, so I don't have any reason for this except perhaps age and regret.

    If Jesus Never Called Himself God, How Did He Become One?


    Terry Gross is the host and co-executive producer of Fresh Air, an interview format radio show produced by WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and distributed throughout the United States by National Public Radio (NPR). She interviews Bart on April 7th, 2014 and prepares the discussion to reflect on Bart's book How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee. The discussion addresses topics such as the major difference between the first three gospels — Matthew, Mark and Luke — and the last gospel, John. On how Roman emperors were called God. On the emergence of the Trinity. On the difference between history and the past and on the empty tomb and the resurrection, just to name a few.

    I actually do not own a TV now, but that is not TV's fault because if I own it, I will watch it. And you know, even when after an hour or so I'm not even enjoying watching it because I'm feeling guilty at how non-productive I'm being, except the feeling guilty then makes me anxious which I want to soothe by distracting myself so I'll watch the TV even more. And it just gets -- I don't know -- it just gets depressing. My own relationship to TV depresses me. It's not TV per se. I do have a VCR so it's not like I never watch a cathode ray screen.


    I was sick in bed one day and decided I would amuse myself by drawing up a list of all the things I thought would be neat to read or that I should've read and that I had not read. And by the time I was on the like twelfth page, I began to panic and to realize that I needed to start doing some reading and that if there was a TV in the room (I found out about a month later) I would simply: I mean, the game that I'll play with myself is, 'O, I'll read it with the TV on,' which is, which is just a farce. So I decided that I had too much to read to be able to own a TV.

Each week, nearly 4.5 million people listen to the show's intimate conversations broadcast on more than 450 National Public Radio (NPR) stations across the country, as well as in Europe on the World Radio Network.

The show gives interviews as much time as needed, and complements them with comments from well-known critics and commentators. Fresh Air is produced at WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and broadcast nationally by NPR.
