What people fail to realize is that it wasn't long ago that Houston and Atlanta were neck and neck in black population size. Atlanta's black population didn't boom until the 90s.

The problem is Houston has no hype or media attention like Atlanta. While Atlanta had Freaknik, Houston had Kappa Beach Party. Atlanta has Magic City, Houston has Onyx.

At this point we're simply arguing quantity over quality. Celebrities are ALWAYS here.

It's nothing to see celebrities here. Either you know about Houston or you don't. However, if you only getting your information from the media, then you have no idea what Houston has to offer when it comes to the black experience. Ask anyone who has visited both cities, Atlanta offers more, but Houston does not lack.

You can't compare Onyx to Magic City. You damn sure can't compare Freaknik to Kappa Beach Party...Come on now. Freaknik birthed all the black events nationwide. Magic City birthed the real strip club experience nationwide

I don't know if DC made her who she is, as she grew up on Omaha's North Side and I would think her parents and community shaped her.

I think the point he was making is that it was DC that launched her career and in all likelihood, she would not have been able to start Radio One in Omaha.

But speaking of notable Black natives of Omaha, there's one even more famous than Cathy Hughes: Malcolm X.

I get the career aspect, but one is shaped in their earlier years. Her former husband helped in getting Radio One started as well.

There's also Bob Gibson from Omaha as well.

I don't think he meant shaped her as a person, but as a business mogul. DC made that possible because of the opportunities it provides.

Yeah. You could say the same thing about the Harlem Renaissance. People came from everywhere but it was Harlem that allowed the movement to flourish.

I'd agree with that. Probably Los Angeles somewhere in there too for entertainment industry purposes at least.

I got that....Prior to Radio One, she was an instructor at Howard. So, it all fell in line.

With the Harlem Renaissance, it was a planned movement that was a way for Black people to express themselves in a way that is outside of the control of the larger culture. So, it was something more powerful than what people may think it was and other cities also had their local versions(5 Points in Denver was called the Harlem of the West/Rockies, as an example).
