Ted Talk:  DANGER OF A SINGLE STORY by Chimamanda Adichie

Ted Talk: DANGER OF A SINGLE STORY by Chimamanda Adichie

In this TED Talk, the Nigerian author warns that we risk a very critical and very cultural misunderstanding when we forget that everyone’s lives and identities are composed of many overlapping stories.

“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete.”

When we hear the same story over and over again, it becomes the only story we ever believe.
