Today In Black History: Honoring the Life of Emmy Award-Winning Actress Ja’Net Dubois

Ja’Net Dubois (1945 – 2020), is perhaps best known for playing Willona Wood on “Good Times”.  Dubois was found dead in her California home on February 17, 2020. She was 74 years old. Her death appears to be due to natural causes.

In addition to Good Times, Dubois also composed and sang, “Movin’ On Up” the theme song for “The Jeffersons” TV show, has two Emmy Awards for her voice-over work on the “The PJ’s” tv series and appeared in several films including: “Diary of a Mad Housewife”, “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka”, and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.” (Source: blackmail4u.com)

That time Ja’net Dubois turned a theme song into an altar call.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
