The Danger of a Single Story
I just watched this video for my “Contemporary African Politics” class and had to share it. I think we are all guilty of telling or knowing a “single story.”
“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.” – Chimamanda Adichie
I love the idea that one story is never, ever enough to describe a place, an individual, or a group.
