In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World will chart her path from a child of white evangelical parents to an activist who identifies as black
The civil rights activist who provoked anger, mockery and confusion last year, after her white parents revealed she had posed as a black woman for years, has unveiled a memoir that claims to explore the discrimination shes suffered while living as a black woman.
Rachel Dolezal, 39, resigned from her post as a chapter president for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People last year, after her white parents revealed that for years she had altered her appearance and hidden traces of her biological family from her life.
Dolezal announced details of the book on her Instagram account on Monday, saying it will be titled: In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.
An Amazon description description of the book says it will explain the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identified as black.
The description also claims the book will force readers to consider race in an entirely new light not as a biological imperative, but as a function of the experiences we have, the culture we embrace, and, ultimately, the identity we choose.
A lot of people think they know what Rachel Dolezal is, it continues. Race faker. Liar. Opportunist. Crazy bitch. But they dont get to decide who Rachel Dolezal is.
The controversy around Dolezal ballooned when she refused to answer any questions about her race, her adopted brother accused her of practicing blackface, and then she insisted that she had deceived no one about her race and that she is African American.
