Jane Elliott - A World of Difference - 2020 Interview - Blue Eyes Brown Eyes

Via One Icon Media:

"In 1968, Jane was a third grade teacher in Iowa and the woman behind the 'Blue Eyes, Brown Eyes' experiment. Our 80-minute interview took place at her home in California, during the interview, she became emotional three times: for her husband, her father, and Martin Luther King Jr. You may not agree with everything she believes in but you can absolutely agree with much of what she says."


Via Frontline: A Class Divided:

"One of FRONTLINE's most requested programs -- third-grade teacher Jane Elliott's lesson in discrimination.

"The day after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, Jane Elliott, a teacher in a small, all-white Iowa town, divided her third-grade class into blue-eyed and brown-eyed groups and gave them a daring lesson in discrimination. This is the story of that lesson, its lasting impact on the children, and its enduring power 30 years later."
