11 years after graduating Yale University with a master’s degree in African history, renowned writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been announced as the 2019 Class Day speaker at Yale University.

Yale Daily News reported that the members of the 2019 Class Day Committee couldn’t imagine a better speaker to commemorate their four years at Yale than Chimamanda.

“She is an inspiring global citizen whose words, teaching, and social activism have had an indelible impact on the diaspora and broader contemporary culture”, the statement read on their website.

Chimamanda’s selection is away from the norm of having politicians as Class Day speakers.

Although, there are no no formal criteria for choosing the Class Day speaker, the Planning Committee member, Shuyu Song ’19 said that the selection process centers around those they believe will give a memorable and meaningful address to the class.

“Given Adichie’s extraordinary experience and poignant literary commentary, we have no doubt that her participation in Class Day will be a memorable part of this day of celebration and address concerns that are relevant to our class as we reflect on the changes that we have witnessed on this campus in the past few years,”he said.
