How are computer science, entrepreneurship and music all pathways to social and racial justice? In Your Voice is Power, students use EarSketch to code novel remixes of Pharrell Williams' song "Entrepreneur." In the process, they learn about decoding the messaging in music, the layers of music and racism, and entrepreneurship as a pathway to social justice. EarSketch is free, web-based, and requires no downloads, enabling students to learn computer science through music remixing.
