Michael and the Jordan Brand say the money will go to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.

Over the next decade, this donation will help get a lot of the necessary work done to create an enormous impact for the Black community. So many programs that will now have the funding needed to have a broader reach.

There is much work to be done and at a cost almost too great to calculate. One more reason Michael Jordan is the GOAT.

Jordan Brand is us, the Black Community.

Jordan Brand is more than one man. It has always been a family. We represent a proud family that has overcome obstacles, fought against discrimination in communities worldwide and that works every day to erase the stain of racism and the damage of injustice.  The will, the work, the excellence the world has come to know is the result of one generation after another, pouring their dreams into the next.

It’s 2020, and our family now includes anyone who aspires to our way of life. Yet as much as things have changed, the worst remains the same.

Black lives matter. This isn't a controversial statement. Until the ingrained racism that allows our country’s institutions to fail is completely eradicated, we will remain committed to protecting and improving the lives of Black people.
