I love this video. This is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie talking about the single story. I just finished reading her collection of short stories, so I really wanted to watch it again. And then I just had to share it. I love stories and I love reading books. This idea of the single story is one reason why I try so hard to read a really diverse assortment of books. No one can be squished into a single story- no person, no country. We are all too complicated. I hope you enjoy!
