Everything Sheila Johnson touches turns to gold. When she co-founded Black Entertainment Television (BET) in the early 1980s, it quickly became the mainstream’s go-to cable channel for urban culture. The NHL team she co-owns, the Washington Capitals, won the Stanley Cup last season. Johnson’s Middleburg Film Festival showed Roma months before the word “Oscar” started buzzing. And Valspar Championship, held annually at her Innisbrook, A Salamander Resort, is one of the PGA calendar’s most-anticipated tournaments.
