A few weeks ago R&B singer Pharrell did an interview with Oprah Winfrey where they talked about the ‘Happy’ craze that has been sweeping the world and also black culture. In the interview Pharrell declared that we live in a society here in America that has spawned what he refers to as the “new black”.

Well Aaron Gilcrest from NBC 4 in Washington D.C. sat down with Howard University professor Greg Carr to address that statement and what he had to say was very interesting. The way that the professor eloquently breaks down the culture, the people, ancestors, and what the majority of blacks in the country face on a daily are exceptional in the piece! African culture in America has always been absorbed by others in one way or another without the burden of being black according to Carr.
