Summary Jane Elliott believes that white people won't act against racism until they have experienced it emotionally themselves, if only for a few hours in a controlled environment. The "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise was originally developed by Jane Elliott for her all white third grade class in Riceville, Iowa at the time of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination to give them some idea of racial prejudice. She divided her class on the basis of eye color and subjected the blue-eyed members to a regime of intense discrimination. They soon cracked under the pressure, losing self-esteem and competence. Filmed for German television, this edition of "Blue Eyed" showcases Jane Elliott as diversity trainer, using the powerful and controversial "blue eyed/brown eyed" exercise with real people, presented in three separate versions so it can be conveniently used in any training or educational setting
