"The Eye of the Storm"

http://kong.sinclair.edu/search/t?SEARCH=eye+of+the+storm+with+jane+elliot

This video documents an innovative experiment in which Jane Elliott, a third-grade teacher, divides her all-white class into "blue eyes" and "brown eyes", making each group superior or inferior on successive days. It demonstrates the nature and effects of bigotry by showing changes brought about in the children's behavior and learning patterns. (25 minutes)

"Anatomy of Prejudice"

She may be an overzealous crusader. She may be on a power trip. Then again, maybe Jane Elliott has pioneered a truly honest and viable way to talk about racial prejudice - a way in which white people and people of color can explore the subject together. This program documents one of Elliott's diversity training seminars, modeled on an experiment she first conducted as a third grade teacher in 1968.

In this film, British citizens of varied racial and cultural backgrounds are separated into brown-eyed "superiors" and blue-eyed "inferiors". Before the day is over, a handful will have stormed out and the remaining group will face painful truths and equally painful opinions about race in the 21st century. (49 minutes)
