Trevor Noah's birth

Storyboard Description

I chose this scene because you can see the discrimination against Trevor Noah already at birth. Thanks to the Storyboard we can see the difference in skin color, which is a problem and the reactions of people.Indeed he is mixed race, his mother is black and his father is white. But it was forbbiden in his country... The doctors are therefore shocked and ask where the father comes from... I think this scene is an important moment in the story of Trevor Noah.

Storyboard Text

  • Come on madam you can do it! You are going to give birth!
  • Who is the father?
  • Huh. That's a very light-skinned baby!
  • His father is from Swaziland...
