The Damage of the 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.

I know this is a few months old, but I've found it a fascinating and sometimes funny watch on how just focusing on one story from a culture can bring on stereotypes.
