According to the #WashingtonPost, basketball legend #MichaelJordan has donated $5 million to the Museum of African-American History that is soon to open in #WashingtonDC.
The announcement was made on Monday. The museum, which #PresidentObama will open on September 24, has raised more than $548 million. Jordan’s donation was the largest from a sports figure. Along with his monetary contribution, the #ChicagoBulls star also donated the jersey he wore during the 1996 #NBAFinals, to be added to the museum’s permeant collection. “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 #JesseOwens, whose talent, commitment and perseverance broke racial barriers and laid the groundwork for the successful careers of so many #AfricanAmericans in athletics and beyond.”
