Basketball legend Michael Jordan has donated $5 million dollars to
the National Museum of African American History and Culture, museum.

The Chicago Bulls star also gave a jersey that he wore during the 1996 NBA Finals to the museum’s permanent 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 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.”

In recognition of the gifts, the museum will name a section of its sports gallery the Michael Jordan Hall.
