The danger of living with a single story

In this TED Talk Chimimanda Adichie, a Nigerian author, weaves a narrative around the danger of living in and being reduced/fixed/suppressed to a single story – where no surprise and no movement seems possible. A narrative around the operations of modern power. Listening to Chimimanda Adichie makes clear that our role as coaches, therapists and community workers is to vehemently question any single-storied conception of life and to bring forth a relieving plural of alternative stories and hence giving back dignity and facilitate new courses of action.
