Final Reflection Essay

Rewatch Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s 19-minute TED Talk, “The Danger of a Single Story.”  In a thoughtful and well written final essay of a minimum of three pages, reflect upon how single stories of Africa that are dominant in the United States (for example, assumptions of poverty, starvation, substandard housing, lack of formal education, lack of influence in world trade, ineffective governments, etc.) have been challenged by what you have learned this semester in HIST 117.  Do draw upon specifics from course materials to support your arguments.
