It’s time to recognize that possibilities shouldn’t be limited by age. It's time to change the stories we tell ourselves about aging. It’s time for a new list.
Join AARP Minnesota and Pollen at Machine Shop on Thursday, October 13, as we recognize and celebrate fifty incredible individuals over the age of fifty who are challenging outdated beliefs about aging, living life on their own terms, and improving the lives of others.
MEET MINNESOTA'S INAUGURAL
"50 OVER 50" HONOREES
Earlier this year, more than 350 people visited 50Over50MN.org to nominate leaders in their community in one of five categories: arts & culture, nonprofit, business, community building, and disruptor. A transparent cohort of distinguished peers then took on the near impossible task of narrowing down the list to fifty of the most inspiring and accomplished leaders from across the state. All of us at Pollen and AARP Minnesota owe a great deal of thanks to our selection committee for all the time and energy they invested in bringing the "50 Over 50" list to life.

Sonny Knight & Blair Krivanek
Mid-last year Minneapolis based Sonny Knight, a 68 year old retired truck driver, and his band of twenty-something to thirty-something year old musicians released a live double album entitled, Sonny Knight And The Lakers Do It Live. The record is a loving return to the height of live Rhythm and Blues with Knight and his band perfectly capturing the uproarious energy and rebellious musicianship of an era long gone. Leading up to recording Do It Live, a year of steady touring through the US and Europe allowed the group to create a seamless set, mixing songs from their critically-acclaimed debut studio album, I’m Still Here, with a couple covers of classic soul songs from their native Minneapolis. Hoping to add to the rich history of live albums rather than producing something merely derivative, they set out to reconstruct the ephemeral experience of a live concert and earn a permanent place on your record shelf.
