This is a wonderful video. Chimamanda Adichie talks about The danger of a single story.
Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.
The danger of a single story makes a very good point. Always ask for a second opinion and try to tell your own version of said story.
