Rachel Dolezal is making headlines with her upcoming Netflix documentary!
The 40-year-old civil rights activist came into the national spotlight after getting exposed over lying about her African-American background back in 2015. However, she later admitted that her biological parents were white, she also came in defense of herself by claiming to identify as “trans-black.” Although she denied changing her position for which she was hit by an avalanche of backlash. Which apparently impacted her kids.
A clip of Netflix’s upcoming original documentary titled The Rachel Divide is generating buzz. The entertainment company specializes in providing streaming media and video-on-demand online released the clip of their upcoming documentary on March 7, Wednesday.
Dolezal and her family were followed by the award-winning filmmaker Laura Brownson for more than the course of two years, during which they struggled to deal with the scrutiny of the public.
Franklin said in the clip, “This book coming out, and this documentary might just backfire like everything else has backfired.” Though Dolezal said that her son Franklin isn’t as optimistic, she noted that the documentary will surely help to rebuild their lives.
He went on to say, “I resent some of her choices, and I resent some of the words she’s spoken in interviews […] She can identify as anything she wants to be, because it’s her business. But when it’s put in the limelight, I don’t think you should be pissing people off more than they already are, unless you want to get bit in the ass from it. She did not choose her words carefully. It affected me, it affected my brother.”
For those who aren’t aware, Rachel Dolezal’s documentary titled The Rachel Divide is all set to premiere next month at the Tribeca Film Festival. It will be released on April 27 via Netflix.
