More Than a Single Story: Finding Courage in a Time of Darkness
1890 Randolph Ave
More Than a Single Story is a series of panel discussions/community conversations inspired by Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s powerful TED talk, The Danger of a Single Story, which shows how stereotypes are fostered when we treat one story of a people as their only story. Moderated by Carolyn Holbrook, the panels invite writers of color and indigenous writers to discuss issues of importance to them in their own words.
This conversation at Wisdom Ways will probe where and how these writers find strength and courage in our difficult times. Mother Teresa once said "I do not agree with the big way of doing things. To us, what matters is an individual.” These women will explore large and small ways they find courage when they need it, and ways that they have given courage to others, often while struggling to maintain their own center.
