This week in class, we’re reading “The Danger of a Single Story” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
In “The Danger of a Single Story,” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie discusses the importance of not allowing one story to construct your understanding of the world.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Identity and Prejudice & Discrimination as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
“What makes you who you are?” and “How does prejudice emerge?”
