In her new memoir, Cookie Johnson, wife of NBA legend Earvin
“Magic” Johnson, shares details of her marriage, motherhood,
faith, and how an HIV diagnosis twenty-five years ago
changed the course of their lives forever.
On November 7, 1991, basketball icon Earvin “Magic” Johnson
stunned the world with the news that he was HIV-positive.
For the millions who watched, his announcement became a
pivotal moment not only for the nation, but his family and
wife. Twenty-five years later, Cookie Johnson shares her
story and the emotional journey that started on that
day—from life as a pregnant and joyous newlywed to one
filled with the fear that her husband would die, she and her
baby would be infected with the virus, and their family
would be shunned. Believing in Magic is the story of her
marriage to Earvin nearly four decades of loving each other,
losing their way, and eventually finding a path they never
November 7, 2016 will mark a quarter-century since the
announcement and Cookie’s survival and triumph as a wife,
mother, and God-fearing woman.
Cookie has never shared her full account of the reasons that
she stayed and her life with Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
Believing in Magic is her story.
