Chimamanda Adichie on the Danger of a Single Story

Novelist Chimamanda Adichien gives a presentation at Oxford in July of 2009 about the Danger of a Single Story.

from the description on Youtube:
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.
