"The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story." 

- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

A Talk and Discussion with Mark Gardner, AIA, NOMA about how he has focused his practice and teaching on community engagement and working on issues ranging from Food Justice to Heritage. The goal of Mark's work is to unearth the stories of Black Culture that guide his design and initiatives.
