Asheville City Councilwoman Antanette Mosley has deep roots in the Asheville community. At the age of five, she was the very first student to integrate Saint Eugene Elementary school in North Asheville. This experience helped shape her passion for achieving equality and equity for all persons.
"My family has resided in the area for five generations, including my late father, Rev. Dr. Charles R. Mosley, a minister in the East End neighborhood, and my late mother, First Lady Lue R. Mosley, who taught in Asheville City Schools for more than 30 years. I know and understand the needs of our community because I have grown up here and have witnessed the changes, both good and bad," said Councilwoman Mosley, “and I am committed to continuing the legacy of being a voice for the unheard and an advocate for the underserved.”
Ms. Mosley graduated from the Asheville School, then attended UNC Chapel Hill, majoring in Psychology. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill, she earned her law degree from Georgia State. Antanette has been a practicing attorney for more than two decades and is also a proud, active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
