Summary

La TED talk más popular de Chimamanda, con más de doce millones de reproducciones.

«Las historias importan. Importan muchas historias. Las historias se han utilizado para desposeer y calumniar, pero también pueden usarse para facultar y humanizar. Pueden quebrar la dignidad de un pueblo, pero también pueden restaurarla.»

Con su característico amor por las historias, en este manifiesto Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie hace una llamada a rechazar los relatos únicos. Se trata de su primera TED Talk, un emotivo discurso que han visto más de tres millones de personas. Con rotundidad y calidez, la autora reivindica la riqueza de la infinitud de historias que nos conforman. En este texto -que se cierra con una reflexión de la filósofa Marina Garcés- Ngozi Adichie alerta sobre los peligros de reducir una persona, un país o una cultura a un relato unívoco, pues solo cuando comprendemos que nunca existe una única historia, subraya, recuperamos una especie de paraíso.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Chimamanda’s most popular TED Talk, with over twelve million views.

“Stories matter. Many stories matter. At times, stories have been used to deprive people of things and slander others, but they can also be used to empower and humanize them. They can breakdown people’s dignity, but they can also restore it.”
 
With her characteristic love for stories, in this manifesto Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie calls on people to reject a single story. This is her first TED Talk, an emotional speech that has been seen by over twelve million people. With determination and kindness, she claims the wealth of the endless stories that shape us. In this text, which ends with a reflection from philosopher Marina Garcés, Ngozi Adichie warns about the dangers of reducing a person, a country, or a whole culture, to an unequivocal and definite story; because only when we understand that there is never just one single story, we can recover a kind of paradise.
