Alexandria, VA : PBS Video, 57 mins In 1970, Jane Elliott, a public school teacher in Riceville, Iowa, divided her all-white, all-christian third-graders into blue- and brown-eyed groups for a lesson in discrimination which was brought to national attention by the award-winning documentary, "The Eye of the Storm". This program updates that unique lesson in a blend of film from the original documentary and a reunion of the former third-graders and their teacher fifteen years later. It also shows an adult workshop with staff members at a prison.
