“Blue Eyes, Brown Eyes” experiment; Iowa Dept. of Corrections training; if you aren’t black..; being present; James Taylor’s song
Welcome to the June edition of Tips and Topics. This edition is focused on an important, game-changing time in USA history.
In SAVVY, I share an experiment from 1970 that changed the attitudes of 3rd graders. The Iowa Dept. of Corrections had a training that was equally illuminating.

I also highlight three areas of life that black people experience that I have never thought of; and I bet you haven’t either if you are a white person.
In SKILLS, three of my colleagues and friends share their thoughts on what to do and where to start as we rethink race relations; re-imagine policing practices; and search our own attitudes and actions.
