10 Popular Black Celebs From The ’90s Who Fell Off The Radar


Lisa Nicole Carson, 44

Carson is best known for her role as prosecutor Renee Raddick in Fox’s television series “Ally McBeal” for four seasons, starting in 1994. During the 1990s, Carson also found success with another popular TV show, NBC’s “ER.” However her film career is more extensive, including films such as “Jason’s Lyric,” “Eve’s Bayou” and “Devil in a Blue Dress.”

Carson’s last active acting year is 2002. It was widely believed that she suffered from a mental illness after some arrests and odd behavior – she was once at a restaurant “sitting alone, talking to herself, and then she locked herself in the bathroom for 45 minutes,” according to a Rolling Stone reporter in 2001. She also spent a stint in a mental institution courtesy of her family.




Kellie Williams, 37

Kellie Williams was best known for her role as Laura Winslow in ABC’s “Family Matters” (1989-1997). The hit family sitcom appeared on CBS for an additional year before cancellation. Williams starred alongside Joan Cusack in “What About Joan?” for two seasons in 2001. For nearly 8 years Williams was out of the spotlight before a brief appearance in 2009, as a substitute host for Niecy Nash on Style Network’s “Clean House.” Williams has two children with her husband Hannibal Jackson.

  6. Norma Nongauza says:

    The opportunities for decent, positive acting roles for African-American women is like 0.02%. Pointless, to pursue a career even if you had success early in life. Hollywood doesn't care for positive roles of sisters, if you haven't noticed.
