An Evening With Sheila Johnson is a one-on-one interview with Sheila Johnson, a classically trained violinist, successful entrepreneur, and dedicated philanthropist. Taped at the historic Art Institute of Chicago, and hosted by veteran PBS NewsHour journalist Gwen Ifill, An Evening With Sheila Johnson explores the life and career of one of the nation's most successful businesswomen. At 8 years of age, Sheila Johnson fell in love with the violin, honing her craft throughout her schooling, and graduating from the University of Illinois with a B.A. degree in music. While in school, Sheila met Robert Johnson, whom she would marry and go on to co-found Black Entertainment Television with in 1980. Sheila taught music as the couple worked to turn BET into a successful network, directing what became an internationally renowned youth orchestra, Youth Strings In Action. When she stopped teaching music in 1989, she poured her efforts into BET, serving as Executive Vice President of Community Affairs, and spearheading programming such as Teen Summit. The Johnsons sold BET in 2002 to Viacom for $2.3 billion, and Sheila went on to found Salamander Hotels & Resorts, a hospitality firm that now owns or manages six luxury resorts. Sheila is also owner of the Washington Mystics, and part owner of the Washington Wizards and the Washington Capitals, the first African American woman to be a major stakeholder in three professional sports franchises.
Three-year-old Monique Corzilius counts to 10, pulling petals from a daisy. A voice from mission control then counts down as the camera zooms into Monique's dark pupil. An atomic blast and ensuing mushroom cloud consumes the TV screen as President Lyndon Johnson's voice proclaims "We must either love each other, or we must die." This political ad, "Peace Little Girl," aired only once or twice during the 1964 presidential campaign between Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater, but it ushered in a new era of the television attack ad. The 1964 campaign also reshaped the American political landscape in other significant ways. Johnson's "Great Society" and civil rights agendas pushed southern states toward the Republican Party and brought the northeast in line with the Democrats, creating America's contemporary geopolitical map of red and blue states. Barry Goldwater's rift with "the liberal Republican establishment," or "Rockefeller Republicans," served as the basis for his landslide defeat in the general election, but also for the rise of an out-spoken and blossoming conservative movement. Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign also spawned the political career of Ronald Reagan, and inspired future conservative offshoots like social and Christian conservatives as well as the Tea Party. BOMBS AWAY: LBJ, GOLDWATER AND THE 1964 CAMPAIGN THAT CHANGED IT ALL includes interviews with historians and participants in the campaign, including Richard and Doris Kearns Goodwin, Barry Goldwater, Jr., Victor Gold, Joseph Califano, Larry J. Sabato, Professor Robert Mann and Monique Corzilius.
