Event description

Description

From childhood on, we're barraged by messages that it's sad to be old: that wrinkles are embarrassing, and older people are useless. Author and activist Ashton Applewhite believed these myths too, until she realized where this prejudice comes from and the damage it does. Applewhite will talk about how ageism divides and debases, and will conclude with a rousing call to action. Whether you're older or hoping to get there, Applewhite will shake you by the shoulders, cheer you up, make you mad, and change the way you see the rest of your life.
