The 2016 presidential election was a wake-up call for @Pharrell, a caustic lesson in the limitations of preaching happiness to a nation that wanted its suffering acknowledged. Now a father of four, @Pharrell fears for his sons, especially, and when he contemplates a balm for the wounded world around him, there’s one word that comes to mind: inclusion. “Black is beautiful, and right now, we are going through it,” he says. Inclusion is also the theme of this photo shoot, whose ensemble cast was curated by @Pharrell himself. “I wanted to be surrounded by the culture, by all different walks of life of our culture, to get some light around me.” Tap the link in our bio to see the full spread.
