#95: Fred Chong Rutherford - A Different Time

This is Love Hurts. Fred Chong Rutherford is a comedian and storyteller living in Brooklyn. Growing up, Fred’s experiences with racism shaped him into the type of person who wanted to make sure he made others feel comfortable. Fred looks back at a potential bonding moment with his white step-grandmother that turned into an uncomfortable conversation about race that he did his best to navigate as a sixteen year old.
