PICS: LAMMAN RUCKER ATTENDS 'I STAND FOR MAGIC' PSA PREMIERE.

Actor/activist/motivational speaker as well as tall, dark and oh-so-handsome Lamman Rucker attended the premiere of 'I Stand with Magic' campaign at the AMC Magic Johnson Crenshaw 15 theater in Los Angeles last week. Now, if you all have read Real Gossip 101 blog posts on Lamman, you'd know that he is more than just a fine, specimen of a man...and if you haven't read them, I suggest you do because if I get started this post will become much longer than it needs to be...so I'll digress. So, instead I'll take this time to thank my loyal reader and devout Lamman fan (and no, it's not FamuDiva LOL!) laporfesora81 (you all can also thank her as well) for sending me the info regarding Mr. Rucker attending this event. And a special shout out to msreape/M.A.R. for supplying the pictures for me and the rest of Lamman's fans. Thanks a lot ladies. I appreciate it so much!


According to the Sun-Herald, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Cookie Johnson, Abbott and the Magic Johnson Foundation launched the public service announcement campaign as part of the I Stand With Magic Program. The public service announcement campaign will premiere nationally this summer and is targeted toward African-American and other minority communities where new HIV infections are prevalent. In 2005, about half of the people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in the United States were among African Americans, who represent about 13 percent of the population. The first PSA entitled, "Stand," focuses on a "call to action" encouraging African-Americans to get educated, get tested and to seek treatment for HIV. The second PSA, titled "Talk" encourages women to protect themselves and talk to their partners about safe sex and HIV. Both will also be featured on Abbott.com and YouTube. The public service announcement campaign launches in advance of National HIV Testing Day on June 27, 2008.

"We need to take it upon ourselves to bring the number of new infections down in the Black communities by arming ourselves with knowledge," said "Magic" Johnson. "Getting tested for HIV can be scary for many people, but I hope by launching these public service announcements to at-risk populations, people across the country will have the courage to get tested and go back for their results."
