Michael Jordan Donates $5 Million to National Museum of African American History and Culture

Michael Jordan‘s unwavering philanthropy persists today as the hall of famer unloaded a hefty sum onto the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.

According to a report from the Washington Post, Jordan donated $ 5 million to the Washington D.C. museum. Moreover, his former team the Chicago Bulls donated a Jordan jersey from the 1996 NBA Finals.

The Post also reports that the museum will name a sports section of African-American themed space the Michael Jordan Hall. Jordan had this to say about this new development:

“I am grateful for the opportunity to support this museum. I also am indebted to the historic contributions of community leaders and athletes such as Jesse Owens, whose talent, commitment and perseverance broke racial barriers and laid the groundwork for the successful careers of so many African-Americans in athletics and beyond.”

Jordan has been extremely active as of late with both his words and his pocketbook. He recently donated $ 1 million each to both the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He also made a statement regarding the killings of blacks by police officers and that of the slain police officers in Dallas last month.
