Ted Talk Thursday #2|Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The danger of a single story

Hello again!

Last week we heard about stress and how we can better deal with it.

This week I thought that it would be nice to listen to a talk given by author  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Chimamanda challenges us to reconsider our preconceptions and stereotypes of people, places and seeing things from other perspectives. She talks about how the media in many forms, portrays a people or a place as being one thing until that definition sticks and how we struggle to disassociate from this. She discusses the dangers of single-mindedness in a humorous and engaging way.

Enjoy!
