The Danger of a Single Story

By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

"Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. Novelist Chimamanda Adichie tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding." -From TEDGlobal2009

And I’m foolish enough to believe that through the power of this love somewhere, men of the most recalcitrant  bent will be transformed and then we will be in God’s Kingdom. We will be able to matriculate into the university of eternal life because we had the power to love our enemies..."
 

The New York Times's Conversations on Race Series

 

In 2015, The New York Times began a series titled "Conversations on Race." The purpose of the video series was to engage in discussion with real people over how their racial identity has shaped their experience in America. The conversations explore personal journeys as well as social and systemic issues that affect people of color in ways that majority culture Americans can sometimes fail to notice.
