FLINT, Mich. - Some Flint natives are coming home next week for the city's first ever Flint Homecoming event.

Flint expatriates are invited from across the country to discover ways they can reconnect and invest in Flint's future.

It’s all about moving the city forward towards progress.

But what does it take to get it there?

We spoke with Tim Herman, C-E-O of Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce, who is helping to organize the event.

We also spoke to Dan White, a Flint native and Pulitzer-winning photographer who was asked to come back to his hometown.

White shared his reasons for coming back, and what this event means to him.
