The Danger of a Single Story



One of my favourite TED talks, by Chimamanda Adichie, founder of the Farafina Trust and author of Half of a Yellow Sun. About the dangers of telling a story from only one perspective.

If you head to the TED site, you can find the transcript in many languages just below the video.

Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.
