    I can watch this a million times... I never get tired of watching it. She is like my Grandmama strong and direct. She did not pass until 103. I wish I had a recording of my grandmother speaking. Trevor, you are so blessed to have recorded your dear Grandmother. Que Dios la Bendiga y la favorezca !

    Your grandmother is such a beautiful soul. If anyone is justified to be angry and against people because of their skin tone, it would be her, and she shows no sign of anger. I can only hope to be half as strong as she must be. Thank you so much for sharing her with us, and thank you, Gogo, for allowing us into your home

    My great aunt raised me she born in 1909 her mother was born at the end of slavery her grandmother was a slave .. Trevor's gogo reminds me of all African grandparents or African American grandparents life was hard as hell but all of them find a reason to keep pushing on and smile while doing it which is absolutely amazing considering the living hell they were all put though ..

    Oh Trevor you made me cry! My granson's (6yr old) and I, we have the same connection as you with your mom. I love him dearly and he does love me too. I pray to God that I will be around him when he grows old. The love and respect you have for your gmama its so amazing. I can relate to that. She is so adorable. I hope my grandkid survive the struggles he is facing now due to the fact that his mother and my son's new girlfriend jealousy intervening with us to see each other more often. God bless you and your gmama always!


    Why do south africans call Mandela "Madiba" what does it mean and it sounds good by gogo's accent.

    Total bullshit. First of all, there's no "road joy" in South Africa. South Africa has tons and tons of road murders. Secondly, if apartheid was so bad, how come Ramaphosa said "I want to tie the White people to trees and BEG them not to leave. We can't let the White people leave." Mandela was pretty good, but honestly, South Africa was probably better under De Klerk than it is now.

    I thought gogo was the 91-year old legally blind great grandma who smelled him shit on her kitchen floor when he was a kid. In his book, he called this gogo "gran".
    Ps. I wanna see his mum and andrew and isaac. I bawled my eyes out while i was riding my motorbike and listening to him tell how his mum got shot in the head.

    I'm from Botswana (Southern Africa). I wonder how African Americans feel when they hear an African language. Does it spark something within them that says 'My roots' or is it just, "Eh..."

    Manager of white people. That is impressive. Turns out Trevor is a racist.
    (Dis vieslik om te sien, maar nie onverwags, aangesien hy 'n swart Suid-Afrikaner is. Wat meer ontstellend is, is dat hy in 'n wit land, Amerika, leef en wit mense beledig.)
    It is disgusting to see, but not unexpected, as he is a black South African. What is more disturbing, is that he live in a white country, America, and insults white people.
    What a f@cking hypocrite.
