Anatomy of Prejudice
Jane Elliott's Seminar on RaceStreaming Video - 2010
She may be an overzealous crusader. She may be on a power trip. Then again, maybe Jane Elliott has pioneered a truly honest and viable way to talk about racial prejudice-a way in which white people and people of color can explore the subject together. This program documents one of Elliott's diversity training seminars, modeled on an experiment she first conducted as a third-grade teacher in 1968. In the film, British citizens of varied racial and cultural backgrounds are separated into brown-eyed "superiors" and blue-eyed "inferiors." Before the day is over, a handful will have stormed out and the remaining group will face painful truths and equally painful opinions about race in the 21st century.
