The Power of Story
I just watched this:
My favorite quote is:
“There is a word, an Igbo word, that I think about whenever I think about the power structures of the world, and it is “nkali.” It’s a noun that loosely translates to “to be greater than another.” Like our economic and political worlds, stories too are defined by the principle of nkali. How they are told, who tells them, when they’re told, how many stories are told, are really dependent on power.”
Wow. What do you think?
I think I want my students to watch this. Maybe they can tell me an instance of how a single story has affected them. Has a single story affected you?
