Adichie’s inclusion in the list of speakers scheduled to address the graduating students was announced on the Havard Gazette.
Adichie will be addressing the Harvard College Class of 2018 as part of the annual Class Day celebration on May 23, 2018.
The event will be coming up a day before the prestigious institution’s 367th anniversary, Harvard’s 367th Commencement.
Speaking on Adichie’s selection, Jerry Nelluvelil, the co-chair of the speaker selection committee said, “We are honored to welcome Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as our Class Day speaker. Her eloquence and perspective as a writer and public speaker have inspired audiences to look beyond stereotypes and social norms to recognize our common humanity.”
