What if discrimination on the basis of age were as unacceptable?
March 19, 2019 , 7:00 pm
title: Ashton Applewhite – Author and Activist Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures
description: 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. Whether you’re older or hoping to get there, this book will shake you by the shoulders, cheer you up, make you mad, and change the way you see the rest of your life. Age pride!
