A Conversation with Trevor Noah

 

The Daily Show star Trevor Noah will join the U-M community for a casual and interactive conversation on this pivotal moment that reflects both adversity and possibility.

In this virtual event, Trevor Noah reflects on the state of our nation and discusses how the U-M community can, in spite of isolation, come together around the arts, pursue racial justice, and rise to the challenge of this moment.

The free event is open to the University of Michigan community, as well as UMS and Ford School supporters and event attendees. You must register for this event in advance; the link for the livestream will be sent out on Tuesday, October 20.

Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, is widely known for his social commentary touching upon issues of racism, immigration, incarceration, and the protest movement. Born in South Africa to a Black South African mother and a white European father during apartheid, Noah knows what it means to live in a divided nation, and he brings a unique perspective in his incisive social and political criticism of the larger issues at play in the U.S. and in the world today. In 2019, he launched a podcast series “On Second Thought: The Trevor Noah Podcast” in which he challenges himself, and his listeners, to explore unfamiliar angles, embrace differing viewpoints, and celebrate the contradictions that make our modern world both bewildering and exciting.

U-M Students, submit your questions for the conversation with Trevor Noah by Friday, October 16.

This event is part of the University of Michigan’s Democracy and Debate Theme Semester.
