THE DANGER OF A SINGLE STORY
Chimamanda Adichie

"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."

Learn while being entertained. 

A born story teller, this Woman.  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of "Americanah," and guest speaker/rapper(?) on a Beyonce song.

She explains the danger that all of us of face by only knowing the details of our own tribe, whether the commonality of our tribe is based on race, class, or nationality, how only knowing our own tribe makes everybody else in every other tribe seem flat, lesser, and easier to stereotype.

It's all so simple when you let her explain it.
