That's good to know that other cities are having them as well. Houston's actually started yesterday with events.

Houston's black culture is getting bigger and better. I love it.

Nielsen ranked the top 10 metro areas in 2015 with the highest penetration of black households earning more than $100,000.

1. Washington, D.C., 7.2 percent.
2. Baltimore, 5.1 percent.
3. Norfolk, Va., 3.9 percent.
4. Atlanta, 3.6 percent.
5. Richmond-Petersburg, Va., 3.5 percent.
6. Baton Rouge, La., 3.4 percent.
7. Memphis, Tenn., 3.4 percent.
8. New York, 3.1 percent.
9. Columbus, Ga., 3 percent.
10. Augusta, Ga., 2.9 percent.
Why wealthy blacks are leaving Chicago for the South - Chicago Tribune

With the addition of the Cyber Command, NSA expansion, and the other countless investments on Fort Gordon. I would expect for Augusta to jump into the top 5 quickly. Alot of black people from DC, MD, and VA will be relocating to Augusta over the next few years.

While it's harder to argue what's the best overall city for blacks. I think Georgia wins the best overall state contest pretty easy..
Is the bolded really MSA or city?

Yep. I was just getting ready to say that. Dallas also had Black Restaurant Week a few weeks ago. Black Restaurant Week is a nationwide thing. It's not just exclusive to Houston.

Good question, as I'm wondering if the Columbus GA and Augusta GA areas are bolstered by the Army/military presence in those areas. If that is the case, I wonder if this is the case for other military areas, as in many cases, Black households tend to have a higher median household income in such areas. Same with other areas with Federal government facilities.

That would mean everywhere on the list except Memphis then?

It's crazy to think about the fact that there's no city in which 10% of Black households earn 100k. That's really indicative of the paucity of two-income households.

And was he doesn't have much of a military presence. There's the a small Coast Guard presence (the least black branch of the military at 6%) and the MEPS at Fort Hamilton

I didn't know about that one!


Houston's own Houston Black Restaurant Week is along the lines of the bigger Houston Restaurant Week; this "week" has no ties to ABlackLife LLC. Thanks for sharing this!
