Angela Stanton-King is the Founder and President of the American King Foundation – whose mission is to reunite American families separated by mass incarceration with a pathway to justice, economic stability, and relational wellness.

Angela is an active board member for Beacon Leadership Academy and an advisor for Cando Clemency and Alveda King Ministries. She is also the Georgia Regional State Coordinator for Coalition of Leaders United. 

Since her release from Prison in 2005, the celebrated owner of Stanton Publishing House, and former Reality TV star of the BET Network docuseries “From the Bottom Up” has been mentored by her Godmother Evangelist Alveda King and has joined her in being a prolific voice in the Pro-Life Movement. Angela has also formed several organizations dedicated to restoring values, healing victims of sexual abuse, and assisting disadvantaged persons. As a community activist, the accomplished writer, speaker, founder, and philanthropist uses her life story, a testimony of redemption, to make a profound positive impact in today’s social and political climate. Her agenda of prison reform and family unification brings hope to all Americans.

Angela is a criminal justice reform advocate who helped pass the First Step Act signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on December 18, 2019. Her story of being chained to a bed during childbirth encouraged President Trump to enact laws making it illegal for women to be chained. The horrendous experience was well documented in her National Best-Selling Memoir Life of a Real Housewife (formerly Lies of a Real Housewife) in which Angela set the record straight and placed all her past dirty deeds on display for public view. 

On February 18, 2020, Angela was given a full unconditional Pardon from President Donald J. Trump after her 2004 conviction on federal conspiracy charges for her role in a car theft ring. She spent more than two years in prison. In a statement by the White House following her Feb. 18 pardoning, Trump said: “(Stanton-King) overcame a difficult childhood to become a champion for redemption and rehabilitation for all who strive for a better life.”
