A Hiroshima survivor who became a leader on many issues in Seattle

Akira “Ken” Nakano was a big influence on me and helped me plan my work in Hiroshima in 2009. He died a few months before I left on the Fulbright-sponsored research that led to this blog. Just before the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing, I wrote a story about him for Seattle-based Crosscut.com, where I now work. It can be found at http://tinyurl.com/23eaqe5.
