On Monday, officials for the National Museum of African American History and Culture announced that Michael Jordan has donated $5 million to the cause.
The donation, the largest from a sports figure to the museum, helps bring the total amount of private donations to the museum to $278 million.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to support this museum,” Jordan said in a statement. “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.”
