The “Brown Eyes, Blue Eyes” is an experiment done by Jane Elliott, the day following Martin Luther King’s assassination, to teach her 3rd grade students, to understand discrimination.
This, now famous, exercise labels participants as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes and exposes them to the experience of being a minority.
