Michael Jordan and the Jordan brand, produced by Nike Inc., released a joint statement Friday pledging to donate $100 million over 10 years to “organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.”

Jordan has previously been criticized in the past for what was seen as his reluctance to advocate for social causes.
