A controversy over whether to remove the Confederate statue from the grounds of the Pitt County Courthouse is prompting a debate.
Pitt County Commissioner Tom Coulson, who says removing the statue serves no purpose, has suggested a public debate with Reverend Ozie Hall.
Hall believes the monument gives the appearance of racism.
Hall says he will debate. Details of when and where that will take place are still being worked out.
