Jane Elliot’s Brown Eye- Blue Eye Experiment

Jane Elliot simulates an apartheid regime in a London warehouse with thirty brown and blue eyed volunteers.  A challenging and provocative video that shows the painful wrestling that takes place when persons tackle the privileges and social favoritism that our belief in race elicits.  Jane Elliot’s brown eye- blue eye experiment demonstrates the ridiculous nature of our belief in externals to determine the worth of other human beings.
