How do rituals and ancestral stories carry us? How does writing reflect those stories? Carolyn Holbrook and a panel of writers of color and indigenous writers will probe these questions in a More Than a Single Story conversation.

These conversations were inspired by Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s powerful TED talk, The Danger of a Single Story, showing how stereotypes are fostered when we treat one story of a people as their only story.

Moderator: Carolyn Holbrook

Panelists: Mary Moore Easter, Mai Neng Moua, Isela Xitlali Gómez R, Vanessa Ramos, and Jna Shelomith
