Georgia governor race brings proposal to erase Confederate carvings on Stone Mountain to fore

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — The Rev. Ferrell Brown, a white pastor at a suburban Atlanta megachurch, stood on the big bald top of Stone Mountain on a warm Saturday morning, sharing a stage with two relatives of those murdered at a black church in Charleston, S.C., three years ago.


In front of him were 2,000 evangelical Christians — mostly a mix of black and white Southerners — who had come to the mountaintop to worship across racial barriers.
