Rihanna yesterday, on February 28, 2017 received the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year Award at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre , in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Rihanna was honoured because of her work in her native island of Barbados and the charities she has founded over the years, the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations.
The Grammy-winner said;
