Pharrell Williams spoke at a press conference Tuesday in support of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s call to make June 19th, widely known as Juneteenth, an official state holiday commemorating the end of slavery.

Pharrell, who grew up in Virginia Beach, called the moment “very special” and “a big display of progress,” adding, “I’m grateful for Virginia and us leading the way.” (He begins speaking at the 22:15 mark in the video above.)
