Singer Jackson Browne will perform at A Concert for Peace on August 6, at 8:00 pm in Little Tokyo, Downtown Los Angeles.
As a part of special community event Remembering Sadako: Folding for Peace organized by the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center, the peace concert will be held at the Aratani Theatre at the JACCC campus, 244 South San Pedro Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics.
Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education.
From August 3 through August 6 at the campus of the JACCC, Remembering Sadako: Folding for Peace, a multi-day remembrance, will pay tribute to Sadako, who was two years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, near her home in Hiroshima, Japan.
Sadako is remembered through the story of a thousand origami cranes. She and the origami crane have become international symbols for peace for children around the world.
Browne’s performance on August 6 will be part of a special evening dedicated to world peace and will include a special appearance by Sadako’s family from Japan.
Remembering Sadako is a multi-generational, multi-ethnic event that will promote peace through arts and culture.
