Avery Johnson in "Black Magic"

Avery Johnson is one of the featured personalities in “Black Magic,” the ESPN film chronicling the Civil Rights Movement through the experiences of players and coaches who attended Historically Black College and Universities. The two-part film airs tonight and Monday.

“For me it brought back great memories of selling games out at the Southern University mini-dome – 7,500 people and you can’t find a ticket in the building,” Johnson said. “For me back then, we thought we were the Lakers of black college basketball.”

Johnson did the interviews almost two years ago. Earl “The Pearl” Monroe is a co-producer. Wynton Marsalis and Samuel L. Jackson are the narrators.
