SPEAKER/PROGRAM SUMMARY
Ashton Applewhite
Author - Speaker - Activist
 

We may think we know what lies ahead: a grim slide into depression, dementia, and dependence. But that’s just the party line, and author and activist Ashton Applewhite debunks it in spades. Part monologue, part consciousness-raiser, Let’s Rock This Chair dispels myth after myth about late life and proposes an alternative to worrying about getting old: wake up to the ageist messages that frame two thirds of our lives as decline, cheer up, and push back. It’s time to work together make discrimination on the basis of age as unacceptable as any other kind.

The voice of Yo Is This Ageist, Ashton Applewhite blogs about longevity at This Chair Rocks, has been recognized by the New York Times, National Public Radio, and the American Society on Aging as an expert on ageism, has been published in Harper’s and Playboy, and is the author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism.
