When Gov. Brian Kemp appointed the Rev. Abraham Mosley as the chairman of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association in April, Mosley became the first Black person to be in charge of the country’s largest Confederate monument.

Mosley says he envisions creating a space for unity in the wake of controversy over Confederate tributes that people of color find offensive.
