The TED Talk done by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The TED Talk done by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian author, was a very powerful talk titled ‘The Danger of a Single Story’ which talks about the negative effects of individuals only learning one stereotypical perspective about another country/ culture and basing their own interpretations, thereby attaching stereotypical identities to others. This video therefore brings up the question of cultural awareness and its importance in understanding people and the world at large. The title ‘danger’ implies that sticking to this single story/ idea will lead to negative outcomes, which we do in fact see in the world today. This unawareness has created a disconnect between people of different cultures and has continued the cycle of stereotyping
