The Danger in ONE Story

This TED video of Chimamanda Adichie from Nigeria, 34, Yale graduate and successful author and advocate for literacy is worth watching. Her message is about the danger of creating ONE story about a people. She had ONE story about America that she learned from the few children’s books she read. Her Yale roommate had ONE story about Nigerians, and couldn’t understand how she learned to speak English so well (it happens to be their national language). Her perspective is inspiring and eye-opening. Thank you Chimamanda Adichie.

About the Author:

How many speakers leave you with memorable life lessons, motivating a life-perspective adjustment, a catalyst for real change? As a professional interactive performance artist, I have stage presence, charisma, a deep vibrant voice, and a message worth your time. I'm too busy to waste my time or yours with talk that cannot be applied personally and professionally in an immediate way. I performed ‘A Story NOT Silenced by Oral Cancer’ Off-Broadway in New York City to a sold-out audience, I founded the Six-Step Screening™ oral cancer awareness campaign, authored two books: ‘Mr. C Plays Hide & Seek’ and ‘Mr. C the Globetrotter,’ to empower children with coping skills and communication strategies when someone they love has cancer, and created ‘My Story Legacy,’ a creative format to document family stories, life values and wisdom for future generations. Share this link with friends/colleagues who participate in conferences in need of a speaker who will rock the house!
