Jane Elliott was the 2006 keynote speaker for Alma College Women's Month. The day after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, Jane Elliott divided her third grade classroom into blue eyes and brown eyes. Her experiment gave power to students with a certain color of eyes, while making the other eye color students an inferior minority. In effect, she was able to witness discrimination based on nothing more than eye color, and she watched her students transform from friends to adversaries. Today, Jane Elliott travels the world discussing issues of power and discrimination. She joined the Alma community to highlight her thoughts and experiences dealing with these issues on March 8, 2006.
