Stories are powerful. They teach us lessons and shape our values. Stories that combine images and sound are especially effective in influencing how we think and act. Think back to Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech on the mall. Freedom-seekers toppling the Berlin Wall. Or Nelson Mandela emerging from prison to end South Africa's era of apartheid. These stories inspired people around the world to think, to start conversations, to take action.
