Pharrell is launching a new MasterClass on racism, social justice

Pharrell Williams, in a partnership with MasterClass and Uninterrupted, released a six-minute mini MasterClass episode on the much more in-depth topics of empathy, racism, and social justice. Williams, 47, tweeted the news on Nov. 11 and the full video is available now to stream on the Uninterrupted website.

The MasterClass deck is packed with over 90 classes, teaching everything from how to be a great writer, to a potential course in curse words from Samuel L. Jackson. A monthly subscription costs $15, or $180 for a full year.

This is the first episode of many in the new series called “The Power You Hold.”

The series will examine “issues of social injustice and systemic racism, offering education and inspiration on ways to impact change,” reads the banner on the Uninterrupted website.

When his community reached out to Williams to see what could be done about “the locals” he told them to “change the temperature of the racial tension” in his city, fraught with systemic racism, and give them a creative outlet.

Empathy’s greatest potential is equality for all mankind. We’ve never seen that. We don’t know what that looks like. It’s never happened. Because equal means equal,” said Williams, ending his powerful class.
