Former NBA All-Star Charles Barkley has announced he’s pledging $1 million to fund IT startups run by black women in Alabama following the Democratic victory in the state’s Senate election.

“I’m announcing right now, I am pledging $1 million to black women in Alabama to start I.T. startups,” Barkley said on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” on Thursday. “Black women really came out and supported Doug Jones.”

“That does not mean restaurants and hair salons, black women,” Barkley said.
