Additional information about The Eye of the Storm with Jane Elliott - DVD

Peabody Award Winner!

This best-selling program, produced by ABC News, was the first video to document Jane Elliott’s courageous undertaking to help her third grade class understand the meaning of prejudice.

A wake up call for all ages, this best-selling program teaches about prejudices using a dramatic framework. It provides an examination of the realities of discrimination as experienced by actual students in the classroom of third grade teacher, Jane Elliott, whose demonstration shows how quickly children can succumb to discriminatory behavior.

Following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., her, all-white, all-Christian third grade class hungered to understand the significance Dr. King’s mission. Living in the homogenous farming community of Riceville, Iowa, many of Ms. Elliott’s students harbored subtle and not so subtle prejudices despite the fact that many of them had never even seen a black man before. So where did these prejudices come from? And, more importantly, how could she make them understand how arbitrary and unfair they were?

This video chronicles her now famous exercise where she divides her class based upon the color of their eyes and bestows privileges upon one group and impediments on the other group. Needless to say, her eye color exercise created quite a storm at the time. But her work endures to this day and this ABC video, nearly 35 years later, still has a great deal to teach us.

The video shows how easily prejudicial attitudes can lead to frustration, broken friendships and vicious behavior.  Many label this the beginning of Diversity Training.  If you’re only buying one Jane Elliott program, make it this one.
