Ms. Jane Elliott, world renowned teacher and activist, will present her extraordinary seminar, "The Anatomy of Prejudice" on Saturday, December 1st. The 4-hour seminar introduces the widely-known Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise, which is the subject of the film, "The Eye of the Storm." Ms. Elliott used the exercise to teach her 3rd grade students about prejudice the day after Martin Luther King was assassinated.
The seminar is hosted by the Institute for Sustainable Diversity and Inclusion (ISDI) and is the final event of the 20th Anniversary Year Celebration of the NW Diversity Learning Series, which ISDI also hosts.
“If you aren’t angry about racism in America you’re
probably white, because you don’t think it’s affecting
you.” --Jane Elliott
Ms. Elliott has taught the Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise about prejudice to many groups around the world. Many of those who have experienced this exercise say it is emotionally significant and life-changing.
Participants will gain valuable insights, tools, resources and activities designed to help them identify their own biased statements, behaviors, and attitudes -- helping them to decrease the amount of racism, sexism, homophobia, ethnocentrism and other "isms" in their environment!
