Chadwick Boseman’s Hometown Already Working on Statue To Honor Him
Chadwick bosemanThe city’s hometown is already working hard on a statue that will honor the “Black Panther” star … but those who want her to replace a Confederate memorial shouldn’t hold their breath.
A spokesperson for the mayor Terence roberts“Office in Anderson, SC told TMZ… the city is working enthusiastically on a permanent public tribute to honor the late actor.
We are told that the city has already contacted an artist and that they are considering how best to honor the hero of the city who has played legendary roles. We are told that the statue will include a mixture of sculpture with wall and / or artistic elements.
The spokesperson admitted they didn’t have any plans nailed down, but assured us it would suit a king. We are told that the mayor’s office wants public participation to make sure the whole city is proud.
A Change.org petition is gathering steam … after calling for a statue of Chadwick Boseman to replace a Confederate memorial currently outside the city courthouse. The thing is … it’s not the mayor’s call, because removing a Confederate monument requires a two-thirds vote in the state legislature.
But what can moving forward … a fitting tribute in the hometown of the late star. As we reported … Chadwick’s sudden death shocked the world after a very private 4 year battle with colon cancer.
Our sincere thanks to
