Diversity in Writing, Diversity in Reading

“Chimamanda Adichie: The Danger of a Single Story”

I’m not normally much of a TED Talk person, but I can’t say enough good things about this one. If you watch/read the news, write, read, share stories, make assumptions, have ever been surprised by someone or never been surprised by anyone, then this is a video you ought to check out. The way we share, interpret, and use stories in our daily lives can have a massive impact on how we understand and interact with the world–sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. If you’re a reader (and/or writer), then this talk on the nature of stories and storytelling is definitely worth a listen.
