Chimamanda ngozi adichie: the danger of a single story

This is so true!

Novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie talks about the danger of narrow mindedness that stems mainly from mass media and western literature and how having one view of a culture, country (in this case continent!) or race can lead to people misjudging, stereotyping and in a way missing out on discovering a whole other side of a culture, country, continent and race they never knew about. No matter where we’re from or what experiences we’ve had, we’re more similar than different.

Though I haven’t watched very many TED talks, this one by far is one of my favourites.
