“This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Aging” by Ashton Applewhite Click: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZHNNKo69ZU


From Library of Congress: "Author and activist Ashton Applewhite discusses her new book, "This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism," in which she talks about her own experiences getting older, while exploding myths about late life. Applewhite's book explains the roots of ageism (both in history and in our own personal denial), examines the crippling effect of ageist myths and stereotypes, looks at ageism in the workplace, critiques how older individuals are often thought of as burdens to society, and examines what an age-friendly world would look like."
