Presenter: Whitney Kuhlin Jane Elliott was a school teacher who decided to make a difference in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. She developed an exercise that used eye color to teach her students about race and allow them to experience what it feels like to either receive privilege and/or experience racism and discrimination. She saw first-hand how it changed them in the classroom. 50 years later, she still speaks, writes, and advocates for equality and justice and uses her exercise with people of all ages and cultures to overcome racism, sexism, and classism. I would like to share her legacy, what she has learned, how she has opened our eyes, and how we can each support, celebrate, and improve diversity in our own spheres of influence.
