The single story, as it relates to a world view, has proved to be a powerful factor in cementing many of the stereotypes and behaviors that we are familiar with.  All of us have been exposed to single stories that leads our own perceptions and expectations.  This concept is a device utilized to force a one-sided view point upon an impressionable mind.  It could be that the intended message is delivered through a simple Christmas card, a local paper or the story books we read as children.

Nigerian Novelist, Chimamanda Adichie, tells us the dangers of the single story in her talk hosted by TED Conferences, LLC. and rebroadcasted above by Elmont.org.  After watching, tell us some of your single stories.  How has the single story affected your community?  How has the single story affected you?
