Rachel Dolezal Changes Name to Nkechi Amare Diallo

Rachel Dolezal is back in the news again. This time she has legally changed her name to Nkechi Amare Diallo. The name derives from the Igbo tribe in Nigeria and is short for Nkechinyere, meaning “gift of god.” Her new last name has its roots in the Fula people of West Africa and means “bold.”

The former NAACP leader, who was born white, continues to maintain that she is black, despite heavy criticism.

Last year Dolezal named her new son, Langston Attikus, after the famed Harlem Renaissance activist/poet Langston Hughes and the abolitionist Crispus Attucks.
