On the next episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, media titan Oprah Winfrey visits sports legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson at his Los Angeles home to talk about his historic career and his life since contracting HIV. Magic made headlines everywhere in 1991 when he revealed he had the disease and would retire from basketball. In 2004, the announcement was named as ESPN’s seventh most memorable moment of the past 25 years.

The episode also features Magic’s supportive wife, Cookie, who joins the conversation as the discussion ventures into the territory of the couple’s support for their openly gay son, E.J., and Magic’s health today.

The episode airs Sunday at 9pm on OWN. Check out a sneak peek below.
