American schoolteacher known for her "Blue eyes/Brown eyes" exercise
Jane Elliott is an American diversity educator. As a schoolteacher, she became known for her "Blue eyes/Brown eyes" exercise. Jane Elliott promotes the idea that there is only one race in race relations, which is namely the human race. She first conducted her famous exercise for her class on April 5, 1968, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. When her local newspaper published compositions that the children had written about the experience, the reactions formed the basis for her career as a public speaker against discrimination.
