After reading the 'Cities with richest African American history and culture", I've been thinking what is the real capital of black america? I heard Atlanta, GA was. But I'm not sure. What are your opinions on which city should be the Capital of Black America?

PG County? I would just say DC and be done with it.
DC and Atlanta has the strongest argument
Other cities may as well but not as strong as these two.

At this point you have to say Atlanta; it has the fastest growing black population by far.

I think the long dead "Black Mecca" thread answered that question.
