How cultural collisions crack open new sides of our own stories
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Writer Enuma Okoro explores how people of differing cultures can be at home within a diverse society. She queries the perception of iconic women around the world and proffers that ‘stereotypes come from a modicum of truth but never give us the full answer’, She challenges us to learn from others because ‘people from different cultures can teach us so much about how to make our way in the world’.
