A Change.org petition wants to replace a Confederate statue in Anderson, South Carolina with a statue of actor Chadwick Boseman.
Boseman is originally from Anderson, South Carolina.
The 43-year-old “Black Panther” star died Friday from colon cancer.
The petition has already gotten more than 24-thousand signatures.
There was already a move to replace the Confederate statue but the sudden death of the hometown hero is increasing the momentum.
South Carolina law currently prohibits the removal of Confederate monuments under the Heritage Act.
The petiton asks for this law to be changed.
