This isn’t the only Juneteenth-related measure Pharrell’s been working on as of late.
He just returned home from his home state of Virginia, where he announced, along with Governor Ralph Northam, that Juneteenth will be recognized as a paid state holiday for the first time in Virginia’s history.
Juneteenth commemorates the day that enslaved Black people in Texas finally learned of the end of slavery, which was signed into law via the Emancipation Proclamation two years prior.
