I’m curious if anyone would mention any other sleepers in regards to this topic? I know Columbia SC has been mentioned, but wondered about any others.

IMO, the main reason for that is because the areas where Detroit's riots took place have pretty much been completely depopulated. Most of the remaining intact neighborhoods in Detroit aren't really urban enough to accurately portray the environment of the 1967 riots.

Not completely true. LA is very popular amongst Europeans. Possibly more so than NYC.

Aside from all the European acceptance going on, I don't see how the black Mecca could be outside of the south.

Detroit, for a brief period during the 60s and 70s, could have made a claim for that title.

It had the largest percentage of black homeownership and the nation's most affluent black population. It also had a rapidly burgeoning black political structure and forever changed black culture with the Motown sound. .

My point being, it's certainly possible for the "Black Mecca" to be outside of the south.

I agree with everything you said, but in 2018, it's hard to see a city outside of the south being a black Mecca.

Why? While people are moving south, it actually isn’t as fast as people think it(is referred to at around 5:20 in the video):

Black immigration that still occurs in Northern cities and an underestimated migration for select folks still into Northern/Western areas likely plays a part in this.
