Howard University Rachael Dolezal

Sues Howard University

Feb 2002

Dolezal sues Howard University, alleging that the university denied her a teaching assistant job, further employment, and a scholarship because she is white. The lawsuit also claims that Professor Smith, chair of the Art Department, specifically kept Dolezal from serving as a teaching assistant one semester and removed some of her artwork from a student exhibition, instead favoring the work of African-American students. Suit:

[Howard University is]  permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult.
