Anti-racism educator Jane Elliott speaks at ASU Project Humanities event

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.
