Meet Earvin "Magic" Johnson

Magic Johnson inspires audiences with the story of his stunning ascent, his philosophy for success, and his vision for a bright and promising future.

Earvin "Magic" Johnson has overcome his share of challenges and pain. In 1991, he founded the Magic Johnson Foundation, which serves as a single-disease organization that works to raise funds for community-based organizations dealing with HIV/AIDS education and prevention programs, hosts and sponsors HIV/AIDS testing events, and also gives college scholarships to minority students from underserved communities through its Taylor Michaels Scholarship Program. The Foundation has since responded to the growing needs of inner-city communities, including health, educational and social needs. In addition to his philanthropic work, Johnson is the founder and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises (MJE), a global empire that is a catalyst for fostering community/economic empowerment by making available high-quality entertainment, products and services that answer the demands of ethnically diverse urban communities. MJE has a wide range of business endeavors ranging from sports ownership to food service and facility management, produces quality work in film, television and publishing, and represents the biggest names in media and entertainment. During his athletic career, Johnson earned five NBA championship rings and led the Los Angeles Lakers to nine NBA finals. He has won three MVP awards and played in 12 NBA All-Star games. A member of the original Dream Team, he earned a gold medal at the 1992 Olympic Games.
