Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The danger of a single story

For me this talk is about freedom.

Reminding yourself that you don't represent a single story frees you explore other facets of yourself. Remembering that others also don't represent a single story permits you freedom of a deeper human connection with them and the permission to celebrate their diversity.

I thought Chimamanda's delivery was spectacular. I first heard parts of this talk on the TED Radio Hour podcast and I enjoyed it just as much the second time.
