A petition to erect a statue of Chadwick Boseman in the place of a confederate memorial in the late actor’s hometown has received thousands of signatures.

So far, nearly 13,000 people have supported the online campaign, which would see the monument in downtown Anderson, South Carolina, removed and replaced with a statue of the Black Panther star.

Addressing the Mayor of Anderson, Terence Roberts, the petition reads: “The Confederate Monument belongs in a museum but has no right to be displayed there.

“I believe the community should come together to honor someone from Anderson, South Carolina, that was able to change the movie industry. He opened many doors for many young Black people with his leading roles in movies such as Black Panther or Marshall. It is only natural that his hometown honors what he did. There is no need for political controversy in this decision.
