NBA legend Michael Jordan and his Nike Jordan Brand announced the latest round of grants through its Black Community Commitment on Friday.
The commitment, which was launched last July and aims to “directly impact the fight against systemic racism,” includes a $100 million pledge over a decade.
Here are the latest grant recipients:
- National Museum of African American History and Culture ($3 million over three years)
- Morehouse College ($1 million over two years)
- Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting ($1 million over two years)
The announcement noted the latest round of donations is focused on creating a “more complete understanding of how structural racism has impacted American history.”
