brother of Rachel charged for sexually abusing black child

Summary: Joshua Dolezal, brother of former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, is being charged for sexually assaulting a black child.

No doubt Rachel Dolezal presents a conundrum, a white woman presenting as a black leader of Spokane’s NAACP, recently and peculiarly outed by her parents as white. Just Monday she resigned as her organization’s president, and has done an interview for the “Today” show. A peculiar family arrangement probably preceded this drama – and this has become clear through her older brother and only biological sibling – the others were adopted and some were black — Joshua Dolezal, 39, who has recently been faced with four felony charges of sexual assault upon a black child.


The charges allege he forced the victim to perform oral sex on him, and also performed oral sex on the victim “7 or 8” times. “Don’t tell anyone or I’ll hurt you,” he allegedly said.

The charges claim the child was “6 or 7 years old,” while Joshua was “19 years old.”

How this relates to the parents outing Rachel isn’t clear, but in interviews they have at least suggested that Rachel orchestrated these charges to win custody of her brother Izajah. They allege Rachel claims him as her son, and he currently lives with Rachel in Dolezal.

Joshua Dolezal will be tried in August.

His further contribution to this peculiar case comes from his memoir. As an English professor at Central College, he has written a memoir of his childhood under Pentecostal homesteaders who raised the children according to their faith.

The memoir further give the most telling picture of Rachel Dolezal’s broken marriage, to a black man, Kevin Moore, which ended in divorce in 2004 after what the memoir describes as scenes of domestic violence and sexual assault.

“I murdered him hundreds of times in my sleep,” Joshua wrote in his memoir.
