Angel Kelly is a retired pornographic actress. With Jeannie Pepper and Heather Hunter, Kelly was among the first African-American women to "cross over" into mainstream porn video.[2] She is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame.[3]

Kelly began her film career in 1985. During the period in which she was most active, 1986 through 1988, she made more than 100 original films — 53 in 1987 alone — but by the early-1990s she was appearing in fewer than five films a year. Kelly's final performance in an original film was in 1991.[1]

Kelly and Heather Hunter were interviewed by Bev Smith regarding their reflections on their involvement in the adult movie industry. The interview can be viewed at [1]. In the interview, Kelly states she grew up in Lansing, Michigan.

In 2005, Kelly was inducted into the Legends of Erotica Hall of Fame with fellow porn actress Porsche Lynn performing the induction ceremony.[4] [5]

Kelly was inducted into the Adult Video News Hall of Fame at ceremonies held on January 12, 2008.[3]

She was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame on April 16, 2009.[6]
