Mind you, we’re still gathering our thoughts about her rather unusual name for a woman born in the western part of the world.  Nkechi Amare Diallo, formerly known as Rachel Dolezal, has not only recently changed her name but also written a memoir.

Here’s some highlights from around the web.

  • On drawing self-portraits as a child: “I usually picked a brown crayon rather than a peach one … I felt black and saw myself as black.”
  • On her version of childhood fun: “[I would] make thin, soupy mud, which I would then rub on my hands, arms, feet, and legs … I would pretend to be a dark-skinned princess in the Sahara Desert.”
  • On meeting her adopted black siblings at age 10: “For the first time in my life, I felt like I was truly part of a family.”
  • On relating to slaves: “I knew what it was like to be a child and have to work as hard as an adult, and how it felt to be used and abused … I also understood the pain that comes from being treated like less than a full human being … and the fortitude required to fight this sort of injustice.”
