Jane Elliott Biography »
Jane Elliott (born May 27, 1933, Riceville, Iowa) is an American former schoolteacher, recognized most prominently as an anti-racism activist and educator, though also a feminist and LGBT activist. She created the famous "blue-eyed/brown-eyed" exercise, first done with grade school children in the 1960s, and which later became the basis for her career in diversity training. Her exercise and the subsequent controversy became the basis for the television documentaries Eye of the Storm (1971) and A Class Divided (1985).
