Magic Johnson's University of Iowa lecture has been canceled, according to a UI press release.

The former college and NBA star was scheduled to speak in Carver-Hawkeye Arena on April 28 about how he worked to revitalize inner-city communities in the U.S. through business ventures. Johnson founded the Magic Johnson Foundation, which addresses the needs of diverse urban communities, according to his website.

According to the press release, Johnson canceled the lecture because of scheduling conflicts, and it will not be rescheduled.

The UI Tippie College of Business and the UI Lecture Committee were sponsoring the event.
