The Single Story

Happy New Year everyone!!!

I came across this video of one of my favorite authors, Chimamanda Adichie. In the video she gives a speech on 'the danger of a single story'. It is truly powerful. After watching, I started thinking about the single stories I hear daily and those I grew up with; and how I can successfully address single story issues with Yus and even my little sister as they encounter them. Only knowing the single story causes great misunderstanding.

Check out the video below...

I love this video too, Nkoyo. It's amazing how those single stories she speaks of permeate our minds and greatly influence our interactions with others. Watching this video a while back helped (and is still helping) me express the dangers of a single story with my children and other children I love as well.

Have a Happy New Year and may you and your family be blessed immensely!
