There's no denying that race-related violence has dominated the national social discourse or that musicians and other artists have played a huge role in initiating dialogue and action. In accordance, the special Shining a Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America will air tomorrow night (Fri. Nov. 20) on A+E Networks at 8 p.m. EST featuring such artists and celebrities as Pharrell, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, Morgan Freeman, Jill Scott, Tank and more.

The two-hour benefit concert was taped in Los Angeles last night, and aims to inspire a constructive dialogue about race relations, inequality and recent violence across the U.S. this year. The TV special Conversations on Race in America will air afterward.

Of the many performances, Big Sean and John Legend's "One Man Can Change the World" and Pharrell's "Freedom" backed by a choir in Charleston, S.C. will stand out to hip-hop fans. That Pharrell performance was recorded earlier this month at the site of the fatal church shooting.

Ticket sales for the concert event alone had raised over $150,000 for the Fund for Progress on Race in America powered by United Way Worldwide.
