Talk about one helluva surprise!!!
The NAACP didn't get a heads-up about Michael Jordan's $1 million donation -- they learned about it Monday, at the same time everyone else did ... and they couldn't be happier!
"Today, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. was thrilled to learn that Michael Jordan will be making a $1 million grant," the org. said in a statement to TMZ Sports.
In fact, the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund president, Sherrilyn Ifill, says, "We are grateful for this support, which will allow us to deepen our engagement on the issue of policing reform at this critical time in our country.”
