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.
