We as a society are vulnerable to anyone in a position of power. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie stated in her Danger of Single Story talk that power is to be greater than another. These people in power control the stories and unless we investigate different perspectives ourselves, we unwittingly give in to their version of the truth. Adichie stated about Fidles family “It had never occurred to me that anybody in his family could make something.” (4:00). From the single-story her mother told her, she believed that people in poverty were worthless, incompetent, and needed pity, but instead, she found that poverty does not describe a complete person. There were other components to the story that she was blind to before but there was finally light shining through. We often neglect to uncover different perspectives of a ‘single story’, giving us an incomplete story. Instead of looking up and down, left and right to find more sides, we look straightforward and see a dead wall with the story that people who hold power want us to visualize. Despite this, we can start to educate one another, learn to look past the single story, and instead of forming unfounded ideas, we can create fully coloured in stories. Different perspectives create different narratives. One might see Africa and a country of poverty, water shortage, and uneducated; yet another person could view Africa as a country rich with culture, joy, and tradition. When we bond two narratives together we create a story with more than just one perspective, a story that is one step closer to the complete truth. In fact, as soon as we are exposed to different sources of evidence, we can start to create our own story, create our own values and beliefs. However, I understand that it is inconceivable of me to believe that everyone will fully understand a story and see a three-hundred-and-sixty-degree view on it. Nevertheless, even if we only add one more narrative to the story, at least it will no longer be reading a single story.
