Description

A discussion following two TED talks - from the list of “best TED talks of all time” -

How does prejudice start?

Chimamanda Adichie's talk 'The danger of a single story' has been viewed over 12 million times .

Our lives, our cultures, are composed of many overlapping stories. In this TED talk novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichic tells the story of how she found her authentic cultural voice -- and warns that if we hear only a single story about another person or country, we risk a critical misunderstanding.


AND TED talk "If a story moves you,act on it" Speaker Sisonke Msimang

Stories are necessary, but they're not as magical as they seem, says writer Sisonke Msimang. In this funny and thoughtful talk, Msimang questions our emphasis on story telling and spotlights the decline of facts.

Msimang asks you to switch off your phones, step away from your screens and step out into the real world to create a plan for justice.
