For the naturalistas of the world, when it comes to getting the latest scoop on natural hair techniques and products, hair shows and rallies are usually the answer. The question is…would you attend one featuring Rachel Dolezal?

For those who have somehow forgotten, Rachel Dolezal is a Howard University graduate, former NAACP president, and Africana Studies professor who was exposed for being Caucasian by her own parents after identifying as African-American for many years.

Dolezal was recently tapped by celebrity stylist and natural hair activist, Isis Brantley, to headline the Naturally Isis Braid-On, Economic Liberty March and Rally in Dallas, Texas, which is happening this Labor Day weekend.

According to The Daily Beast, Dolezal mentioned: “I’m not coming as a curiosity or for any controversy. My intention is to support Isis and the braid freedom movement in whatever way it will be most helpful. I don’t want to be a liability for anyone. It’s a justice issue and I’ve been a social justice activist for years. It’s really that simple.”
