    "The consequence of a single story is this:

    It robs people of dignity. It makes our recognition of our equal humanity difficult. 

    It emphasizes how we are different rather than how we are similar.

    Stories matter. Many stories matter.

    Stories have been used to dispossess and to maliign,

    but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize.

    Stories can break the dignity of a people,

    but stories can also repair that broken dignity."
