Description

In 1968, in response to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Jane Elliott involved her third grade students in all-white, all-Christian, Riceville, Iowa, in an exercise in discrimination based on eye color. This program features a diversity training session using clips from Elliott’s previous documentaries of her famed blue eyed/brown eyed experiments. It contains carefully selected and thought-provoking clips from the blue-eyed/brown-eyed documentaries. These compelling moments can be used to help diversity educators respond to statements most frequently expressed by participants during diversity workshops. Seeing and discussing these clips can help us to recognize some of the issues surrounding the "isms" with which we all live.
