Syracuse Reads Round-table: Born A Crime

Nov 13, 2018

WAER and Hendricks Chapel recently hosted an on-air, round-table discussion on Trevor Noah’s “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood”.  The book was selected for the 2018-19 Syracuse Reads Program, a shared reading initiative coordinated by the Provost’s Office that is part of the First-Year Experience for all new Syracuse University students.

Hosted by WAER General Manager Joe Lee and the Rev. Brian Konkol, dean of Hendricks Chapel, the round table conversation also included four first-year students—Bryan Hudnell, Dassy Kemedjio, Hadiya Lee and Allison Weiss—focusing on themes of identity and belonging, spirituality, and diversity and inclusion.
