What if discrimination on the basis of age were as unacceptable as any other kind of prejudice? Ashton Applewhite is a leading voice in an emerging movement dedicated to dismantling ageism and making age a criterion for diversity. Known for her 2017 TED Talk with almost 1.5 million views Applewhite asks us to look at ageism — the assumption that older people are alike and that aging impoverishes us. In This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism she reveals the untapped possibilities of late life—in our communities, at work, and in ourselves.
