Elder Grace: The Nobility of Aging (Paperback)
Product Descriptionby Chester Higgins, Jr., Foreward by Maya Angelou
Elder Grace is a love song to the notability of aging, with a personal foreword from Maya Angelou. This powerful book based on the travelling photographic exhibition of the same name features personal portraits of African-American elders and their thoughts about the experience of aging. The process of aging for some elder people can translate into a mysterious reservoir of wisdom - people who miraculously blossom, seasoned by years of living. Through the lens of his camera, Chester Higgins, Jr. takes a look at eighty thriving African-American men and women who found beauty within themselves and are experiencing aging with energy, wit, and grace. Alongside each portrait are comments from the subjects that express a collective wisdom about life and aging. As our population grows older and begins to sift through and reflect upon life experiences, the real-life inspiring models of elderhood in Elder Grace are sure to bring comfort and inspiration to many.
