The gift was made to support programs that help shape the narrative of the Black experience in media and popular culture.

“Our grantees’ critical work includes education about Black history, improving the way Black stories are told, expanding sports journalism education and opportunity for students at HBCUs, and promoting leadership development among journalists and storytellers,” noted an announcement from Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand.
