Rachel Dolezal: ‘I Identify as Black’
Rachel Dolezal breaks her silence on TODAY: 'I identify as black' (Today)
Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP chapter president accused of pretending to be black, tells TODAY's Matt Lauer in an exclusive live interview that she identifies as black — something she started doing at the age of five.
"I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon," she told Lauer. "It was a little more complex than me identifying as black."
