The Danger of a Single Story
VIDEO: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The danger of a single story
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie states that, “the consequence of the single
story is this: It robs people of dignity. It makes our recognition of
our equal humanity difficult. It emphasizes how we are different
rather than how we are similar”.
Have you seen the influence of this in your own life? In what ways
have others seen you through the lens of “a single story”? How did it
affect you, and do you feel that it changed you in any way?
