Rachel Dolezal, who made headlines following allegations that she lied about her racial identity in 2015, announced last week that she will be releasing a memoir.

Her book “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World,” and will be available on Amazon March 28, 2017.

The memoir's description on Amazon says that it will explain "her sense of belonging, she felt while living in black communities in Jackson, Mississippi and Washington, D.C., and the discrimination she’s suffered while living as a black woman."

In 2015, the former Spokane, Washington, NAACP leader was exposed as a white woman who claimed to be black. Dolezal later resigned from her position with the NAACP and was dismissed as chair of Spokane's police ombudsman commission.

Dolezal was born to white parents in Lincoln County, Montana, in 1977. She came to media attention last June when her estranged parents publicly said that she is a white woman who was passing as black.
