We need more stories

We need more stories

Incredibly thought provoking talk by Chimamanda Adichie: The danger of a single story

that is how to create a single story. Show a people as one thing, as only one thing, over and over again and that is what they become

“Power is the ability not only to tell the story of a person but to make it the definitive story of the person”

The consequence of the single story is this, it robs people of dignity.. it emphasises how we are different not how we are similar
