It's commencement season in Boston, and several commencement speakers are walking the tightrope, finding a balance between showing empathy for the year that graduates just went through while inspiring them to meet the extraordinary moments ahead.

We hear highlights from this year's area commencement speakers, and are joined by WBUR Edify Reporter Max Larkin, Simmons University President Lynn Perry Wooten, and Jyotika Vallurupalli, a UMass Amherst graduate and one of her university's student commencement speakers.

This segment aired on May 24, 2021.
