A look at Downtown’s past
Thursday, January 25, California Museum, $6.50-$9
Sacramento is in the midst of major changes, altering the look and feel of many of the city’s neighborhoods with each passing year. An exhibit at California Musesum takes a long look back at a side of Downtown Sacramento you might not have learned about in school. “Kokoro: The Story of Sacramento’s Lost Japantown” returns to the museum for the second year with a collection of rare family photographs of the neighborhood before it was devastated by Americans’ internment of Japanese citizens in the 1940s and the redevelopment of the 1950s. It was developed by former Japantown residents and author Kevin Wildie, whose book “Sacramento’s Historic Japantown: Legacy of a Lost Neighborhood.” See the exhibit on display through 3/11. 1020 O Street, www.californiamuseum.org.
