The Danger of a Single Story

As we cross borders to read with children, let's heed this warning issued by novelist Chimamanda Adichie about the dangers of listening to only one story about another culture. I especially appreciated her thoughts on power and storytelling.

In the comments, Pittsburgh librarian Sarah Louise posed some great questions as a follow-up to this video:
What is YOUR single story? What is the one *facepalm* question you get asked again and again because of the color of your skin, your accent, the state you are from, the country you are from, the school you went to?

How can your writing, or teaching, or suggestion of books to read, change someone's single story into a faceted story?
