Big Discussion: The Danger of a Single Story

I’m working on a History question and need guidance to help me study.

Watch Chimamanda Adichie’s
TedTalk. (Links to an external site.)
Adichie sees stereotypes as complicit in the perpetuation of single stories: “[T]he problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”
Please think about your own life and experiences. First, what is YOUR story that is not a single story? Second, discuss a time when you were guilty of reducing someone else to a single story. Finally, how do we move past the single story?
Make sure to reference the TedTalk in your topic reply.
