Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Pharrell Williams are producing a new musical inspired by the African-American holiday Juneteenth, which honors the abolition of slavery in the United States. Black-ish writer Peter Saji will write the liberetto with Barris while Williams will compose the score with Mimi Valdes. The story will focus on two African-American families, one during the Civil War and one during contemporary times. http://www.playbill.com/article/black-ish-creator-kenya-barris-and-pharrell-williams-to-pen-juneteenth-stage-musical
