For the past few days, controversy has swirled around a local NAACP leader whose parents say she has falsely portrayed herself as African-American.


Parents of NAACP Leader: Daughter Is White, Lied About Being Black


The story exploded late last week when Rachel Dolezal's parents spoke out publicly, saying their daughter is white and of European descent. 

Dolezal, the president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Wash., was scheduled to address the questions surrounding her racial identity at a meeting today, but it has since been canceled

Ruthann and Larry Dolezal talked to "Good Morning America" this morning, explaining that their daughter has been "desperately trying to destroy her biological family" for years.

Hear more from Dolezal's parents, tonight at 9p/12a ET in a must-see Kelly File interview.

Dolezal, 37, grew up in Montana with four adopted black siblings. One of her brothers said over the weekend that she asked him not "not to blow her cover" about her identity. 


UPDATE, 12p ET: The NAACP announced that Dolezal has resigned from her position.
