An effort is underway in Anderson to commemorate Anderson native and ‘Black Panther’ actor Chadwick Boseman with a statue downtown. Fans also left a small memorial display at T.L. Hannah High School, where Boseman was a student.

The petition has 6,500 signatures so far saying in part, “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. Continuing,  The old statue need not be destroyed; however, with the engravings on the base, it is beyond time for its retirement. It should preserve history, but not honor the ideals for which the Confederacy stood.” (Source:  CBS17.com)
