According to her staff biography, Dolezal received her master’s degree from Howard University, a historically black college in Washington, D.C.
“Her passion for civil rights is influenced by her years in Mississippi, where she advocated for equal rights and participated in community development,” the bio states.
Dolezal’s biography also states she has been the victim of at least eight “documented hate crimes.” No suspect has been identified.
