Trevor Noah opened up to NPR’s Renee Montagne today about growing up mixed-race in apartheid-era South Africa, where his parents’ relationship was illegal. His mother, he said, had to disguise herself as a maid so people wouldn’t ask why she was in a white area:

She looked like she was my caretaker as opposed to my mother. The same would go for my father, not holding my hand or anything because he couldn’t be seen to be the father of a mixed race child. You know, I’m running down the street, and he’s running away because he doesn’t want us to get into trouble — and I think I’m playing a game. And what you don’t realize is that they’re basically running away from the law.

Find the full conversation here (and spare a good thought or two for Renee – today was her last day on Morning Edition and we miss her already).

“she was bright, too bright, burning, blazing, alight-

and then she crumbled.

nothing more than fairy dust on the ground,
and the whisper of a legacy through the halls,
the girl who escaped,
the one that ran,
the girl that became free:

all she had left was love to give
our golden girl.“
