Writer Curtis Chin on what growing up in a Chinese restaurant teaches about life

From PBS NewsHour.

Curtis Chin spent a lot of his childhood at his family’s Chinese restaurant in Detroit. At one point, he assumed that he, like his father and grandparents, would spend his life there. Instead, he became a writer and filmmaker. John Yang speaks with Chin about his memoir, “Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant,” and lessons from his family’s restaurant that shaped his worldview.
