046 JANE ELLIOTT: “Oprah’s Most Controversial Guest | Part Two”

She’s baaaaaaaaassack! You asked for it. You got it. This is the juicy follow-up to our most downloaded episode ever. An internationally acclaimed educator, 80-year-old Jane Elliott always tells it like it is–as a result, she received the most hate mail in Oprah show history at the time of her booking.

“White people have been taught to hate,” she says, “and black people have been taught to hate themselves. The election of Barack Obama changed the conversation. And that’s what people are afraid of.” In this episode, she aims her laser-sharp wisdom at pandering politicians and lazy historians.

The creator of the Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes exercise, Jane takes us into her classroom where the results of the now-famous exercise went much further than most people ever knew.

Fiery and candid, she also reveals how her World War II childhood inspired her to fight racism. Her website is www.janeelliott.com. You can listen at Part One at http://www.getboldtoday.com/039-jane-elliott-oprahs-most-controversial-guest/.
