Magic Johnson’s “Announcement’

It’s been over 20 years since Magic Johnson announced to the world that he was HIV positive and changed the face of AIDS. “Because of the HIV virus I have attained,” he said. “I will have to retire from the Lakers.” But he didn’t retire from life, as he became a successful businessman, a television host, an advocate and a grandfather.

Magic and his wife Cookie talk about how difficult that day was and the events that led up to it in the documentary “The Announcement”, directed by Nelson George.

“It’s not so much what people said about him, it’s how he felt and what people did to him,” George said. “Be it people dis-inviting him to their restaurant or dealing with how [the drug] AZT affected his body. It’s an inside-out view as opposed to the things you might have heard discussed on talk radio.”

The Announcement airs on ESPN tonight at 9pm.

  1. Like you, I’ve really only a handful of plugins all of which are on the small side – they aren’t anything extremely elaborate, either. The premium ones I did have, I retired in order to focus my efforts on other projects.And similarly, the plugins certainly play a direct, pivotal part in my career – beyond trying to provide a good product to people, they serve as live examples of work that I’ve used when being contacted for contract projects.All good points, Noel. thanks for the comment.

  2. Hello Ann!!!!I´m so sorry to writing you again!! This macarons are my frustation this is the 5 time with your recipe. I make the folds, and prove it with different number of them. The eggs were in the mixer for 9 minutes. But I have a question about the temperature, it is the only thing that I think I can´t controle enough. My oven has a minimun temp of 160°C and I’ve been trying to open the door a little to control it since 148 or 150, this is possible, or I have to give up!!!I attached a picture, when you can see them without foot, and the are cracked.Thanks!!!
