Ngozi Chimamanda Adichie (author of “Half of a Yellow Sun”) gave a great TEDTalks speech about how stereotypes are born. Basically, she cautions that if we only hear a single story about a group of people, we come to think of them only in that context and can not imagine them as anything else. I loved her book, and after listening to her speech I realize how intelligent she is. She really makes me proud to be Nigerian. The Youtube video of the speech is below.
