The Danger of A Single Story

The Equity Unbound community welcomes you to join us in reflecting on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s powerful TED talk entitled The danger of a single story. 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.
