One Year Later, Rachel Dolezal Says She Has No Regrets About Pretending to Be Black — or Her Book Deal
Rachel Dolezal made international headlines last spring after her parents revealed to a local news station that their daughter, who at the time was president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP, was pretending to be black.
Dolezal sparked widespread debate over the meaning of race when, in an interview on NBC’s “Today” last June, she told host Matt Lauer, “I identify as black,” after being asked if she is an African-American woman.
Almost a year after the controversial interview, the former NAACP leader appeared on “Today” again and said she is “ready to move on.”
“I don’t have any regrets about how I identify. I’m still me, and nothing about that has changed,” Dolezal told host Savannah Guthrie Tuesday.
Shortly after the news about Dolezal’s race was revealed, a 2002 lawsuit she filed against Howard University alleging that she was discriminated against because she was white surfaced, adding to the backlash. The suit claimed that her appointment to a teaching assistant position at the historically black university was unfairly rejected.
Dolezal, who once claimed that her father was a black man, received the backing of the NAACP even after it was confirmed that both of her parents are white.
