Former Secretary of State Colin Powell donated $5 million to City College, his alma mater.

The Harlem native graduated from the school, which is part of the City University of New York, in 1958.

The retired four-star general's gift will support the Colin L. Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership, which was named for Powell in April.

The $5 million gift follows the $2 million in donations he has made to City College already.
