Summary
Older people from a cross-section of ethnic and social groups, discuss the psychology of aging and the myths about aging that restrict their freedoms. Indicates that it is common for people who have experienced racial discrimination in their past, to feel like "survivors" as they age. Also indicates that longevity is creating "beanpole" families where people who live beyond 80 are unclear of their role and negative family relationships are prolonged rather than resolved. Defines topics of study for sociologists researching the new society of older, long-lived adults.
