    #717 UK epidemiologist Richard Wilkinson on the psychological effects of social inequality

    Richard Wilkinson studied economic history and the philosophy of science at the London School of Economics before training in epidemiology. He is now Professor Emeritus of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham Medical School, Honorary Professor at University College London and Visiting Professor at the University of York.  Since his initial research focussed on health inequalities, his books and research papers have drawn attention to the tendency for societies with bigger income differences between rich and poor to suffer a heavier burden of health and social problems. Two of his books have been the subject of documentary films – The Great Leveller  (for the Channel 4 TV’s Equinox series broadcast in 1996) was based on his Unhealthy Societies.  The Divide (based on The Spirit Level) was released in April 2016 (available on Netflix).  The Spirit Level, written with Kate Pickett is now in 24 languages.  It won the 2011 Political Studies Association Publication of the Year Award and the 2010 Bristol Festival of Ideas Prize.  His TED talk ‘How economic inequality harms societies’ has been watched over 3 million times.  Richard has received Solidar’s Silver Rose Award, the Irish Cancer Society’s Charles Cully Memorial medal, and was The Australian Society for Medical Research medallist in 2017. He and Kate Pickett published their latest book, called The Inner Level, in June 2018.

    #715 Noted Iowa Teacher Jane Elliott Still Fighting Racism

    #715 Noted Iowa Teacher Jane Elliott Still Fighting Racism

    In response to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, Jane Elliott devised the controversial and startling, "Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise." This, now famous, exercise labels participants as inferior or superior based solely upon the color of their eyes and exposes them to the experience of being a minority. Everyone who is exposed to Jane Elliott's work, be it through a lecture, workshop, or video, is dramatically affected by it.



    She has biome an internationally known teacher, lecturer, diversity trainer, and recipient of the National Mental Health Association Award for Excellence in Education, exposes prejudice and bigotry for what it is, an irrational class system based upon purely arbitrary factors. And if you think this does not apply to you. . . you are in for a rude awakening.

    #713 Retired U.C. Professor Carl Jorgensen Reflects on Race in America

    #713 Retired U.C. Professor Carl Jorgensen Reflects on Race in America

    Dr. Jorgensen writes: “I was born into a middle-class Black community in D. C. in 1941. I was part of the largest entering class of Blacks ever at Harvard in fall of 1958, served in the first Nepal group in the Peace Corps 1962-1964, and entered Social Psychology at Michigan in 1964 where I was the only Black student entering in either Psychology or Sociology that year and had only one Black student ahead of me in either department.  After obtaining my doctorate I taught at the University of California at Davis for about 35 years, chairing the African American Studies curriculum committee for almost all of that time. I have published papers on Black personality and culture, racism in social science, and African American social science thought. At 79 I am retired but still teach first year seminars at U. C. Davis, small discussion classes that pay a little research money. My preferences are Black Lives and Selected Readings in Personal Growth and Interpersonal Dynamics.”
