The Line on Rachel Dolezal

This week, our line panelists talk about news coverage of Rachel Dolezal, the now former president of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington. Dolezal made national and international headlines when her parents told the media that she is white but has claimed to be black for years.

Host Gene Grant and the line reflect on the significance of this story in conversations about race and identity, both in the US and in New Mexico.
