As you may remember, in 2015, the now-40-year-old famously resigned from the NAACP chapter of Spokane, Washington after it was revealed that she lied about being African American.

Now in the clip from the flick, the former civil rights leader — who announced her name change to Nkechi Amare Diallo in March 2017 — talks to son Franklin about her controversial past.

When people caught word of Dolezal’s film, they immediately took to social media to voice their frustrations and/or amusement. Some of the reactions include:

Late Wednesday, Netflix issued a statement defending the documentary, saying its aim is to spark dialogue about social issues such as race and identity. The company also says Dolezal was not paid for her participation.

That same day, filmmaker Laura Brownson — who followed the former Africana studies instructor for two years — told Vulture:

“In making the film, I came to a deeper understanding of the raw nerve that Rachel hits in our society, but I also learned that her motivations to identify as she does are far more complicated than most realize… Regardless of how people feel about Rachel, I hope the film will challenge audiences to think more deeply about race and identity in America.”

Black or white, Rachel will forever be a controversial figure.
