Magic at PCCC

Earvin "Magic" Johnson, former NBA star, is coming to PCCC.

I remember hearing the news in 1991 that he got AIDS. A neighbor told me about it, and I was just floored. He was really the first person I knew of who contracted HIV. I rooted for him as he made a comeback, and he's really proved how much progress has been made in treating HIV. People used to think of it as a death sentence, but here's Magic, 16 years later, going strong, and promoting awareness of AIDS/HIV.
