NBA Cleveland Cavilers’ LeBron James has always used his time and money to good use when it comes to charity and public service. James is once again using his millions to donate to The National Museum of African American History’s Muhammad Ali exhibit.

Via Huffington Post:

The “Muhammad Ali: A Force for Change” exhibit features items from the late boxer, including a training robe worn at Dundee’s Fifth Street Gym in Miami. While the exhibit details Ali’s sports journey, it also highlights his community activism, spirituality, and politics.

“We are extremely grateful to LeBron James,” said Damion Thomas, curator of the museum’s Sports Gallery. “As the most socially active superstar in sports today, LeBron James is a testament to the influence of Muhammad Ali (who) embodied the racial and social tumult of his times, blurring lines between politics and sports, activism and entertainment.”

Also part of the donation will go towards the museum as well.
