Southern Heritage Alerts: CALL TO REMOVE CONFEDERATE STATUE

2/16/06

CALL TO REMOVE CONFEDERATE STATUE

The Pitt County (NC) Confederate Monument has come under attack from the Rev. Ozie Hall, a "civil rights" activist in Greenville NC. Hall says the monument "gives the appearance of racism and support of the old slave south."

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 his supporters plan to attend the next meeting of the Pitt County Commissioners to ask that the monument be removedon, Monday, 20 February.  The meeting will be held at the Commissioners' Auditorium in the Pitt County Office Building, 1717 West Fifth Street, Greenville NC, at 6PM.
