Chimamanda Adichie - The Danger of a Single Story (TED Talks 2009)

Tell me again, what did you say about representation not being important?

This gifset goes perfectly with an article I just read. This is why media representation is so important. Because it brainwashes our children to not even see themselves in their OWN stories.

Just read Adichie’s new novel Americanah, which I highly recommend. Great book, and not too much weather in it.

Disney finally has a message for the parents: if you don’t nurture your childrens gifts they’ll think they’re freaks, isolate themselves and freeze your entire kingdom

Also, the trolls told them to teach her to learn to CONTROL her powers. Her parents told her to HIDE and SUPPRESS her powers. Now you see an accurate portrayal of what happens when you keep pain and problems locked up and bottled down for too long.
