Thomas C. Sorensen Seminar: Martin Luther King Week Policy Seminar

January 15, 2007 | 3 - 4pm

About:
Jane Elliot is an internationally renowned teacher, lecturer, and diversity trainer who presented this seminar in the City Campus Union. She is famous for her classroom experiment, “Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes.” Invented in response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the experiment exposes participants to the experience of being a minority. The experiment labeled individuals as being inferior or superior solely because of eye color and helped the world to understand the subtle presence of racism and prejudice.

Sponsors:
This event was part of the Chancellor’s Program and UNL’s Martin Luther King Jr. week and was co-sponsored by the Public Policy Center as part of the Thomas C. Sorensen Policy Seminar Series.
