Chimamanda Adichie
she was an early writer and reader she  started to write about what she recognized.She only  read books that only had white people in it. She had American roommate that thought that she couldn't do stuff that Americans can do like speak English and use a stove. She also was offended by her roommate that she tough that Africa was a country because she tough that she meant that they were not important. She wrote a book a publisher did not accept her writing because she was not telling the real story.She went to Mexico ,she thought that  they always get arrested that they only wanna live over the government and when she went over there she felt bad because she felt she was acting like her American roommate. (notes)

  1. What does it mean to have a 'single story' about a place or community?is when you you think about something like you make a tough about that place
  2. Describe a single story you have heard told about your community. What is missing from that story? How could people learn more about that community? They say that my community is only African Americans only live their they re missing that all recces live their Mexicans and whites live their to they could learn about it by visiting there some day. 
  3. Describe a single story you have heard about another community. How did you learn that story? How could you find out more about that community? i heard that the south side only has white people because that is the rich side i could do some research about it or visit it some day.
  4. How could a game let players experience many stories about a place or community? Like try to tell the players that it is not right to be telling people that the east side is the dirtiest place in Austin if you have not been there .
