Pharrell has made waves after helping to pay off student loan debts of youth leaders in the community. 

Pharrell reportedly paid off the student loan debts of five youth leaders in the NAACP. The news came during a panel held at the St. Regis hotel in Washington D.C., discussing the Black student debt crisis. Pharrell made the leaders aware during the event, blessing the two recent college graduates and three college students. The NAACP’s national director of youth and college went on to say:

“Pharrell forever changed their lives. Student debt continues to disproportionately plague the Black community and crush opportunities for so many Black people.”
