An anticipated response from a Washington state NAACP chapter leader about accusations that she has been pretending to be Black has been postponed. Rachel Dolezal, 37, said in an email to members of Spokane's NAACP chapter that she would address the claim by her parents Monday night during a monthly meeting, NBC station KHQ reported. But the chapter announced Sunday on Facebook that the meeting during which Dolezal was expected to speak had been delayed.

"Due to the need to continue discussion with regional and national NAACP leaders, tomorrow's meeting is postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date," the statement said.
