More info about Trevor Noah
Under apartheid legislation, Noah's mother was classified as Black, and his father was classified as White. Noah himself was classified as Coloured. His parents' interracial relationship was illegal at the time of his birth under apartheid law. Interracial sexual relations and marriages were not decriminalized until the amended Immorality Act of 1985, a year after Noah's birth. Noah's mother was jailed and fined by the South African government. Patricia and her mother, Nomalizo Frances Noah, raised Trevor in the black township of Soweto. Noah spent his early youth at the private Maryvale College (at the age of three he started preschool, and at the age of five he went to primary school), a Catholic school in Johannesburg. During his childhood, he attended Roman Catholic church on Thursday and multiple services on Sunday.
