A Class Divided
Monday, January 18 | 7pm--Virtual Film Screening & Panel Discussion
Produced in 1985 by the PBS series Frontline. The day after Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, Jane Elliott, a teacher in a small, all-white Iowa town, divided her third-grade class into blue-eyed and brown-eyed groups and gave them a daring lesson in discrimination. This is the story of that lesson, its lasting impact on the children, and its enduring power 30 years later.
