Rachael Dolezal

Resigns NAACP post

15 Jun, 2015

Dolezal gives up her post as president of the N.A.A.C.P. chapter in Spokane, Wash. Officials at the N.A.A.C.P. chapter in Spokane, and at the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where she had previously worked, say she had also represented herself to them as being partly of black descent. It was a claim she also made in news media interviews and in an application to the City of Spokane for a seat on the Office of Police Ombudsman Commission, to which Mayor David A. Conton appointed her.
