Magic Johnson and Coke 'Pay it Forward' at Clark Atlanta University

4 lucky students, nationwide, will have the chance to shadow and learn from either Magic Johnson, Common, or Debra Lee for one week


NBA legend and business mogul Earvin “Magic” Johnson gave an inspiring speech to a packed audience of more than 500 employees and students from the Atlanta University Center recently. Joined by multi-Grammy Award-winning musician, actor and philanthropist Common, Johnson shared personal childhood stories and insight into the importance of giving back to the community and participating in the “Coca-Cola Pay It Forward” movement.
