In 1968, after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jane Elliott, a public school teacher in Riceville, Iowa, divided her all-white third-graders into blue-eyed and brown-eyed groups for a lesson in discrimination. On successive days, each group was treated as inferior and subjected to discrimination. A 1970 documentary, Eye of the storm, presented this experiment on television. This documentary reunites the teacher and students 15 years after the experiment to analyze its enduring effects.
