Pharrell Williams

Staff Pick

Last fall, pop star Pharrell Williams paid a visit to Charleston, visiting several historically important landmarks — including Gadsden’s Wharf, the former port of entry for African-Americans — for the A&E program Shining a Light: Conversations on Race in America. He capped off his trip with a song at Mother Emanuel AME. Performing the single “Freedom” with the church’s gospel choir, Williams was embraced by the congregation, which welcomed him again for a townhall meeting addressing racial inequalities. —Kelly Rae Smith
