Powerful video: The Danger of a Single Story

This is truly amazing; if you only ever decide to watch one video in order to understand the global imbalance of news and the skewed and incredibly simplified perception of the perceived ‘other’ make sure it is this one. Browsing through one of my favourite blogs, Africa is a Country, I came across this and I cannot recommend it enough. Nigerian author Chimamanda Adichie talks as part of a TED event about the danger of a single story. But there’s no way I can put it better than she does so just have a look.
