As for the State schools Tennessee St, FAMU, Bethune-Cookman, South Carolina State, Alabama A&M, Alabama State, Southern, and Jackson St have huge networks, but they haven't had the same level of influence as the other schools. Not to mention their accreditation and funding/endowment problems.
Yes, but don't sleep on Texas Southern University. Nearly 30% of US AA pharmacist graduated from TSU.

Do they have this info by state? I was wondering because it may be a matter of where companies are located. As an example, here are people from a church that works for Corning Inc. in Corning NY: FaithToFace.Org: Welcome

I was wondering why Houston had such an exceptionally high number of Black pharmacists. Good stuff!

I know FAMU graduates a lot of Black pharmacists as well.

I dunno. Stanford published stats on its CS majors though.

Note that they lump Blacks into a "Underrepresnted Minority" category. We can assume that Black students probably make up less than 50% of that group.

The most common occupation for a Black person in the NYC metro is a secretary or administrative assistant. The second most common occupation is a retail salesperson. The third most common occupation is a janitor.

The most common occupation for a Black person in the DC metro is a secretary or administrative assistant. The second most common job is a retail salesperson. The third most common occupation is an accountant.

The most common occupation for a Black person in the Atlanta metro is a customer service representative. The second most common occupation is a retail salesperson. The third most common occupation is a janitor.

All of these cities will pretty much have retail, secretary, customer service representative or janitor as their top occupations for Black people. DC is the exception to this rule; it has more Black accountants than janitors, payroll clerks, receptionists, customer service representatives, bus drivers, human resource assistants, fast food workers, mailroom clerks, etc.

Janitor is the most common occupation for African Americans in Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia.

I see you didn't give a shout out to PV and it's nursing program. You rival you.

Massive drop off from 10th to 11th. Like a really big and noticeable gap there.
