Angela’s career in the media began in 1986 when she began working at her first radio station, WCLK while a student at then Clark College (now Clark Atlanta University.) She began hosting a jazz countdown show and was promoted to afternoon drive, Hot Ice. By 1988 she began writing for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) while still a college student. Around 1990 she moved to her first commercial radio station, WFOX, then WALR-Kiss 104 while continuing to report for the AJC. After her stint at Kiss 104, she moved to WSB-FM Radio, and by1993 she had reached the pinnacle of her radio career at WVEE V-103 where she worked for 3 years. During her stint at V-103, Angela began a community service initiative, Angela Greene’s Women on Top Awareness Series supported by the City of Atlanta, Mayor’s Office for which she received a Phoenix Award. In 1999 she returned to Kiss 104 where she worked briefly before she got pregnant with her identical twin daughters. After her daughters were born, she returned to radio part-time as the traffic anchor for the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

In 2011, she began her master’s program at the University of Phoenix where she graduated with honors with a degree in Administration of Justice and Security. This same year was pivotal for Angela as it was also the year, she was studying for the LSAT when the events that led to her civil rights case against the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta emerged. Ultimately Angela was forced to represent herself through the District Court of the Northern District of Georgia, the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, the Supreme Court of Georgia, and the Court of Appeals for Georgia. Angela was recognized by the Federal judge in her case for her outstanding work as a pro se litigant. Despite her impressive legal skills, Angela has never taken a law class.

During her journey through the legal system Angela worked as a high school Language Arts teacher for 8 years. At the conclusion of her case, Angela documented her journey in her self-published book, Unnecessary Roughness- The Story of a Mother’s Fight for Justice. Inspired by her legal experience, she founded Change Agents Advocacy Group (CAAG) where she first became a civil rights advocate and later transitioned into education advocacy. She learned in 2017 that her family in Mississippi, where she was born was highlighted in the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum for their contributions to civil rights.  Later that year, the museum added her daughters Girl Scout project that was subject of her civil rights case and her book, Unnecessary Roughness to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

Much to her surprise, in 2019, she was invited to returned to 91.9 FM WCLK where she hosted Jazz It Up, where she worked for 1 year before writing and creating her own jazz show, Jazz Flavors, which airs on WPGN Radio Atlanta (The Prayze Network), the only jazz show on this gospel platform. Also in 2019, Angela was asked to be an executive board member or Black Women in Radio, where she serves as the Director of Media Relations and Public Affairs, a position she proudly holds.  In 2020, Angela was asked to be the Executive Producer of On Point with Juandolyn Stokes on Atlanta’s News & Talk, WAOK. Angela and Juandolyn presently have the top-rated show on WAOK and are the first female led team to do so. Also in 2020, Angela learned that the legal brief she wrote on behalf of a parent, won an education law case in Gwinnett County Superior Court. This is one of her proudest accomplishments in her life. In December 2020, Angela, and her daughters, were awarded a Proclamation from the City of Atlanta for their contribution to civil rights for their work in the Girl Scout Case.
