Chimamanda Adichie. The Danger of a Single Story

Hope you are having a good weekend my dear prgoretti family. For this weekend, we shall do something different… No fun music to dance to because I have received some emails that I really must share with you. Let’s start with the startling beauty below:

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – novelist, poet and recently mentor.

Chimamanda is a Nigerian Novelist whose career I follow closely, and she continues to move me emotionally with her humility and very easy style of communication.  I am not here to advertise her literacy credits and accomplishments but I will urge you to listen to this talk she gave at Oxford University. I believe we all have our single stories and we may give some more thought to it and just maybe…  Enjoy!

    I can’t say how much this special friend – Chimamanda Ngozie (never met) inspires me.I have been listening to this talk of a ‘single story’ almost on a weekly basis.

    Anu, you just nailed it for me this week, Ow! (nodding my head); Chimamanda is truly an inspiration for our generation of young African women. I am a proud owner of 3 of her novels, just recently acquired ‘The thing around your neck’, anxiously waiting for the delivery!!

      The beauty of this story is in its simplicity. I feel exactly the same way Gwen.
