Jane Elliott is an American former schoolteacher, recognized most prominently as an anti-racism activist and educator. She is also known as a feminist and LGBT activist. Elliott created the famous "blue-eyed/brown-eyed" exercise, first
done with third-grade school children in the 1960s, which later became the basis for her career in diversity training.
The exercise was conducted the day following Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination. The purpose of the exercise was
to try to teach her students the effects of being a minority. Her exercise, and the subsequent controversy, became the basis for the television documentaries Eye of the Storm (1970) and A Class Divided (1985). Elliott was also recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education and many other awards.

Join me for this Special Edition on LIF Talk with Cherie as Ashanti speaks about her newest project that teaches Chemistry through animated songs and mini-lectures that breaks the information down to the most elementary level. This new learning system will help high school students, special ed students, adults seeking to go back to school, homeschool students. And once completed will be affordable than any traditional tutorial program and will be most convenient because it will be in the comfort of your home and could be reviewed as often as the learner would like. If, or by faith when the project reaches beyond its original goal, steps will be made to provide tutorial DVDs for all math and sciences in K-12 education.
