In 1968, the day after Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, the students in a small third-grade class couldn't understand why he had been killed. King had been the "Hero of the Month" the previous February. Their teacher, Jane Elliott, wanted to help them understand the enormity of his death. She decided to try a daring classroom exercise on the meaning of discrimination, as detailed in the classic film, THE EYE OF THE STORM.
What she taught those children and the effect her lesson had on them throughout their lives is explored in this award winning follow-up, A CLASS DIVIDED.
First broadcast in 1985, A CLASS DIVIDED was hailed as a "riveting, and potentially life-changing hour" and was honored with the Sidney Hillman Prize and an Emmy Award for outstanding informational programming.
Over the years, A CLASS DIVIDED has become a classic - a powerful exploration into the nature of prejudice which has been used in classrooms, corporations, prisons and other governmental and educational settings.
