Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian author whose novels, stories, and other works are highly acclaimed. Please enjoy this TED talk she gave in which she discusses the dangers of having “only one story” about other cultures; in this talk she tells how she found her authentic cultural voice, and about misunderstanding that people risk when we assume we know about other cultures and people from a single perspective.
Please share with teachers and students that you know. Her message is pretty powerful.
