List of African-American neighborhoods

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The list contains the names of cities, districts, and neighborhoods in the U.S. that are predominantly African American or that are strongly associated with African-American culture— either currently or historically. Included are areas that contain high concentrations of blacks or African Americans. Not counted are Afro-Caribbeans, Afro-Latinos, Afro-Asian, Afro-Indian, Afro-Polynesian, West African, and Sub-Saharan African immigrants.

The largest African-American community is in Atlanta, Georgia; followed by Washington, DC; Houston, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; Miami, Florida;[1][circular reference] and Detroit, Michigan.[2] About 80 percent of the city population is African-American. A quarter of Metro Detroit (Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties) are African-American.
