The Danger Of A Single Story

May 22, 2017

Novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie gave a TED Talk exemplifying “The Danger of the Single Story.” According to Adichie, the single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story. If we have a single story about someone, we don’t see beyond that story and maintain limiting beliefs about that person. Adichie further examines how the single story can be used to make negative stereotypical judgments about a people or country that are repeatedly read and heard over and over, so that one begins to view an entire people as one identical unit representing that story.
