Do we have the right to tell another person’s story? HL ENGLISH LIT

Personally, I feel that to some extent we do have a right to tell another person’s story. However, it must be factual rather than opinion-based. In my opinion, I think that sharing a person’s story may benefit society as it may educate people or at least help spread ideas and beliefs. Sharing a person’s story may even act as a voice for minority groups in communities, or people who are unable to express themselves which would in turn help to raise awareness on certain issues. Sharing stories, helps people connect through not just problems that we face but also through culture and religion or even personal opinions on certain ideas helps to build relationships. However, it also depends on what the story entails, as the story may be a traumatic personal experience and exaggerating the event through personal opinions could influence the way other people understand the story.
