Event description

Description

On October 12th Jane Elliott will be in Boston at the Strand Theatre! She is the adaptor of the Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise in teaching about the anatomy of prejudice as well as the subject of the Peabody Award-winning film, "The Eye of the Storm." She will discuss the reality of racism and the responsibility shared by all of us for illuminating it in and eliminating it from ourselves and our environment.

Those attending the presentation will be encouraged to share with others the issues Jane Elliott raises as they relate to our workplaces. We will also be encouraged to share the resources she will provide that are designed to help us identify our own racist statements, behaviors, and attitudes. Participants will also receive a list of suggested activities which, if implemented, can help them to decrease the amount of racism in their environment. Finally, she will offer a list of books which, if read, can provide added insights to the problems of racism with which we are all confronted.

“Whites need to acknowledge and work through the negative historical implications of ‘Whiteness’ and create for ourselves a transformed identity as White people committed to equity and social change...To teach my White students and my own children...that there are different ways of being White, and that they have a choice as White people to become champions of justice and social healing.” ~Gary Howard
