Michael Jordan has donated $5 million to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., the Washington Post reports. The Chicago Bulls also donated a Jordan jersey from the 1996 NBA Finals.
Per the Post, the museum will name a sports-specific section of its space the Michael Jordan Hall.
"I am grateful for the opportunity to support this museum," Jordan said of his donation. "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 in the giving mood recently, having donated $1 million each to the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in July.
