A petition on change.org calls for the replacement of the "Confederate Monument in Downtown Anderson with a statue of Chadwick Boseman." More than 3,000 people have signed so far.

"With Chadwick Boseman’s early passing, it is important that we honor a true local legend my immortalizing him in stone in front of the courthouse. The Confederate Monument belongs in a museum, but has no right to be displayed there," so the petition, which calls for the old statue not to be destroyed but replaced as it is "beyond time for its retirement."
