HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg residents are saying welcome back to an event celebrating African-American history.

Saturday night, the "comeback" parade for Black History Month made its way through East Hattiesburg.

At one time, it was an anticipated annual event and this year, it returned, complete with floats, dance teams, some young royalty and tributes to fallen family members and Hattiesburg Police.
