Hey Harlem great news the 2019 graduating class at Harlem Promise Academy 100% was accepted into college to help further their opportunities. The Famous music producer, fashion designer and philanthropist Pharrell Williams vowed to give them all internship opportunities after they completed their first year of college.
Pharrell gladly accepted the opportunity to do the commencement speech for the graduation ceremony. During his speech he announce which students will receive internships and the people in the crowd shed tears and applaud like crazy. Pharrel had some great words to say and "the world is watching Harlem but this Renaissance will be different Pharrell said in his speech believe it or not with respect it's going to actually be better and the reason why is because the new Harlem Renaissance has education at its core".
It's always great when men like Pharrell Williams give back to Inner City youth because the youth growing up admire Producers and Musicians like Pharrell. Pharrell has done music with likes of Jay-Z, Diddy, NORE, THE Clipse, Kanye and Justin Timberlake. The youth are very talented they just lack the resources and so a lot of times "black people don't just need jobs they need job creators"so big shout out to Pharrell for empowering, uplifting, inspiring and motivating some youth in Harlem that look up to him so that they can have a better vision towards there Destiny in life and maybe one day do the same for future generations.
