MICHIGAN TECH UNIVERSITY — “We’re all related, and I will not tolerate somebody abusing one of my relatives because of somebody else’s ignorance about skin color. I won’t have it. I won’t put up with it, and neither should you,” Jane Elliot said while addressing Michigan Tech students Wednesday.
Jane is an activist and educator, focusing on racism, discrimination, and prejudice. And though her personality is enough to leave a big impression, she’s famously known for an experiment she did on her third grade classroom, 49 years ago.
Elliot was brought to speak at MTU through a series put on by the Center of Diversity and Inclusion.
