her DOB for a long time. Some sources have 5 August 1945. I don't see how
1945 can be right. Wikipedia says "DuBois began modeling in the late
1950`s and appeared as a `Jet Beauty` for Jet magazine in 1960."
This is her photo in the 24 March 1960 issue of Jet (SFW)
Next, if she was born in 1938, she was 36 to 41, while on "Good Times,"
making her a year older than John Amos and a year younger than Johnny
Brown. If she was born in 1945, she was 29 to 34, four years older than
Jimmy Walker. Once again, I don't see how 1945 could be right.
Then there's an article that appeared in the 26 October 1987 issue of
"Jet" states that her 36-year-old son died. That means he was born in 1950
or 1951, which is pushing it even if she was born in 1938.
Jet's announcement of Raj Gupta's death:
Even so, a slim majority of reference cites use the 1945 DOB, as do most
articles. For example, an article published last year refers to her as 72.
It mentions Raj Gupta and even links to the Jet death annoucement, but
minimizes it with "some reports suggest..."
I am willing to discount the Raj Gupta death announcement, but even
without it, everything lines up to her being born in 1938 and turning 80
I'm just throwing this out there to see if there's an angle I hadn't
