CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - After being selected as a commencement orator for Harvard's graduation ceremony in May, recent Harvard men's basketball graduate Chris Egi '18 authored a piece for The Players Tribune about his Harvard experience, and the current events surrounding his tenure at Harvard and the shooting of Michael Brown in Missouri.
"I'll never forget how the pavement felt, lying on my back in the middle of traffic. The cold through my shirt. Pebbles digging into my skin.
It was in the first semester at Harvard. Freshman year. There was a lot going on: I was taking four classes and I was one of the new guys on the basketball team. And now it was late November and here I was lying on my back in the middle of a busy street in Cambridge. Traffic had stopped. Horns were honking.
I remember saying to myself, Chris … dude … how did you get here?"
