But even though the children of the 60s (who warned us not to trust anyone over 30) are redefining what it means to be active and aware contributors, they’re not immune to ageism (both internalized and cultural). This talk by blogger Ashton Applewhite on MondayApril 8th, takes a look at stereotyping and discrimination on the basis of age — and why it’s so damaging.
