Rachel Dolezal has announced the title of her upcoming memoir.

She posted to her Instagram page that the book will be called In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World.

Dolezal, former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) chapter in Spokane, Wash., turned heads in 2015 by publicly identifying as a black woman.

The activist’s new book will reportedly “describe the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identified as black.”

“Her story is nuanced and complex, and in the process of telling it, she forces us to consider race in an entirely new light — not as a biological imperative, but as a function of those experiences we have, the culture we embrace, and ultimately, the identity we choose,” the summary reads.

Many people took to Twitter to discuss Dolezal and her upcoming tell-all book.
