Anti-racism educator Jane Elliott speaks at ASU Project Humanities event
Nov. 8, 2017
As part of an ongoing campaign to promote social consciousness and individual accountability, ASU Project Humanities invites nationally-known anti-discrimination educator Jane Elliott to the Valley to speak on the myth of racial superiority.
Elliott earned national fame in 1968, when she taught her third-grade class about discrimination by dividing the students by eye color. The “Blue Eyes-Brown Eyes” exercise sparked major controversy, and moved Elliott onto the national stage, where she still works to combat discrimination.
“An Evening with Jane Elliott” is on Nov. 9 at 6 p.m. at Central High School.
