Call To Remove Confederate Statue

One group's desire to see the Confederate soldier monument removed from the grounds of the Pitt County Courthouse is generating a lot of feedback. Reverend Ozie Hall of Greenville says the statue gives the appearance of racism and support of the old slave south. Pitt County Commissioner Tom Coulson disagrees, saying "removing it serves no purpose beyond slapping at the history of the community." Hall and a group of supporters plan to attend Monday's Pitt County Commissioner meeting to ask that the monument be removed.
