OAKLAND, Pa. - The controversial Stephen Foster statue in Oakland is set to be moved next month.
The city is looking to replace it with a monument dedicated to an African-American woman who made a mark in Pittsburgh.
Residents can vote on who they'd like to see honored in an online survey.
- Florida boy stabbed to death had invited suspected killer for pizza the night before
- FBI digging where treasure hunters are thinking of gold
- Police search for missing man last seen in February
- VIDEO: Man who fired at officers during standoff found dead in home
Some of the nominees include:
- Madam C.J. Walker (entrepreneur and philanthropist)
- Helen Faison (city's first African-American superintendent of schools)
- Gwendolyn Elliott (Pittsburgh's first African-American female police commander)
Last year, the Arts Commission voted to move the Foster statue, because some feel it portrays a slave at the famous minstrel composer's feet.
