"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."
Watch Chimamanda's talk and reflect and respond to the following questions:
- What are some of the "single stories" that may plague your understanding of people and the world?
- Have you ever regained the "type of paradise" that Adichie refers to?
- How can we save ourselves from the dangers of the single story?
- Are there circumstances in which opinions formed by the single story are acceptable?
