His experiences in Chicago after WWII

Transcripts available in the following languages:

I don’t recall any real discrimination. So, Chicago was pretty good in that sense. And at school, I didn’t sense anything. There were a fair number of Japanese in the school. I’m not exactly sure why, but when the Japanese went to Chicago, they tended to cluster to just maybe for some kind of a feeling of ease that they went together. So, at this high school, there were a fair number of Japanese also.
