About Jane Elliott

In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., teacher Jane Elliott set aside her lesson plan for the day and instead took her students through a controversial process that would become known as the "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes" exercise. Now an internationally known teacher, lecturer, and diversity trainer, Jane Elliott will make a rare appearance at the Museum of Tolerance to discuss her groundbreaking work and its implications for today.
