Rachel Dolezal explains that she was born white but identifies as black

"With In Full Color, Rachel Doležal describes the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identifies as Black," the book's Amazon tease reads. "Along the way, she recounts the deep emotional bond she formed with her four adopted Black siblings, the sense of belonging she felt while living in Black communities in Jackson, Mississippi, and Washington, DC, and the experiences that have shaped her along the way."

She said she has been unable to find steady work in the nearly two years since her background became public in media reports, and she is uncertain about her future.
