Chimamanda Adichie Awarded Doctor Of Letters, Honoris Causa By Yale University by damiloladuke: 12:23pm On Jun 10
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been awarded a Doctor of Letters, Honoris Causa degree by the Yale University, Connecticut.

The popular novelist took to her Instagram page moments ago to make the announcement.

This is the 9th honorary degree received by Adichie from a major US university in honour of her exceptional achievements as a novelist and speaker.

She was awarded same award by the American University in Washington DC in May 2019.

Her award-winning novels, short-stories and talks have been celebrated globally and has arguably set the tone for conversations about feminism amongst other topics. Her last publication was titled "Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions," in March 2017.

Her 2009 TED talk,"The Danger of a Single Story," has over 17 million views, making it one of the most viewed talks of all time, and is required viewing in the first-year AUx curriculum.

She is also well known for her critically acclaimed books "Half of a Yellow Sun," "Americanah" and the book-length essay "We Should All Be Feminists.

I don't think a week has ever gone by without this lady receiving an honorary award.
She's making impacts and other countries are really acknowledging that unlike in Nigeria where we celebrate mediocrity.
Its either one girl is removing her pants on Instagram or Alexreport is gracing frontpage with pictures of beer parlor awards given to some dumb dirty ladies

This girl is good in what she's doing but she's ignorant of the laws of God.
Her mind is blinded by the prince of this world to believe in feminism.
Whatever you achieve, without the LORDSHIP of JESUS will become vanity at last!!
I love you Chimamanda but pray you find Salvation on time!!!
