SAN ANTONIO - Rachel Dolezal, the woman who claimed to be black despite her white-European ancestry, will not be appearing at a Dreamweek San Antonio event Sunday.

Dreamweek is showing the documentary, The Rachel Divide, this Sunday at Alamo Drafthouse, but says they uninvited her following a petition.

Shokare Nakpodia, the founder of Dreamweek, says they removed her because they didn't want her presence to overshadow the 117 other events they have.

They do plan to still air the documentary and have a panel discussion after.
