Harvard Law School announced that actress Michelle Yeoh will be its 2023 Class Day speaker. The Class Day ceremony will be held on May 24.

  1. Michelle Yeoh is a good advocate for the Asian community. She speaks her mind. Harvard should not expect a token Asian speaker. In her speech, hope Michelle condemns Harvard’s practices to limit admitting applicants of Asian descent.
