The Danger of Telling a Single Story

Marianne over at Zen and the Art of Peacekeeping just posted this wonderful video from Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. She speaks on the danger of telling a single story about a country, a group of people, a single person. She talks about the fact that we all have multiple stories that make us who we are and to focus only on one of these is to flatten our experiences and reduce us in some way.

What else can I say? Plenty I'm sure, but really just watch it. She's absolutely amazing.
