Michael Jordan has made another major donation, pledging $5 million to the Smithsonian’s new African-American history museum on the National Mall. Officials at the National Museum of African American History and Culture announced the gift from the basketball great Monday. The museum is set to open Sept. 24.
In recognition of the gift, the museum will name a section of its sports gallery after Jordan. He also donated a jersey he wore during the 1996 NBA Finals to the museum’s collection.
