He was recently interviewed on OPB radio in a segment that ran during Morning Edition. The OPB website has that interview (click on listen), as well as Chung performing the story of Fred Korematsu (click on the caption beneath Chung's picture). Korematsu was a Japanese-American citizen whose Civil Rights case stemming from the internment of the Japanese rose to the level of the US Supreme Court.
