Chimamanda Adichie receives Harvard’s highest honour

Global renowned Nigerian writer, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, has received the highest honor of Harvard University, the W. E. B. Du Bois Medal.

She received the medal at a ceremony on Thursday.

The W. E. B. Du Bois Medal is Harvard’s highest honor in the field of African and African American studies. It is awarded to individuals in the United States and across the globe in recognition of their contributions to African and African American culture and the life of the mind.

The Hutchins Center for African and African American Research stated that the medal was for people who embody the values of commitment and resolve that are fundamental to the Black experience in America.

Other recipients include Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Laverne Cox, Agnes Guns, Raymond J McGuire, Deval Patrick, and Betye Saar.

Director of the Hutchins Center, Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., in an official statement, had said that the 2022 honourees represent an unyielding commitment to pushing the boundaries of representation and creating opportunities for advancement and participation for people who have been too often shut out from the great promise of our times.
