John Jung, a psychology professor from Cal State Long Beach, has been writing extensively on the history of Chinese immigrant life in the Deep South during the twentieth century. His first book was a memoir, Southern Fried Rice: Life in a Chinese Laundry in the Deep South, which depicted his childhood growing up in Macon, Georgia. He has also written on Chinese laundries and groceries in the South too. Check out Dr. Jung’s Youtube channel where he discusses his research and the reasons for turning to history writing:
