“I believe in the complexity of the human story and that there’s no way you can tell that story in one way and say, This is it.

Always there will be someone who can tell it differently depending on where they are standing; the same person telling the story will tell it differently.

I think of that masquerade in Igbo festivals that dances in the public arena. The Igbo people say, If you want to see it well, you must not stand in one place. The masquerade is moving through this big arena. Dancing.

If you’re rooted to a spot, you miss a lot of the grace.

So you keep moving, and this is the way I think the world’s stories should be told—from many different perspectives.”
