Columbia Public Schools alumni reunite and celebrate at the Black and White Ball Parade on Saturday. The parade was one of several events in the reunion this weekend, including the Black and White Ball on Saturday night and a picnic in Douglass Park on Sunday afternoon. Event Organizer May Freelon Hall said the celebration of Columbia Public Schools alumni has continued as a tradition in the black community when alumni from Douglass, the first black high school in Columbia, wanted to come together to celebrate.
