On the latest episode of the Detroit Evening Report Weekends, WDET’s Tia Graham talked with author, filmmaker and activist Curtis Chin about his new book remembering his childhood in Detroit’s Chinatown.
Curtis Chin grew up in Detroit’s Cass Corridor in the 80s. The neighborhood was the historic home to the city’s Chinatown where Chin’s family owned one of its most popular restaurants. The author, filmmaker, activist and founder of the Asian American Writer’s Workshop has written a memoir exploring the unique lessons and perspectives from his childhood in Detroit.
Graham spoke with Chin about “Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant,” being a first-generation college student and repping Detroit to the world.
