Michael Jordan and his company, the Jordan Brand, committed to donating $100 million over the next 10 years.

“Jordan Brand is more than one man. It has always been a family,” the statement released by Jordan’s manager, Estee Portnoy reads. “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.”
