I definitely differ on a couple of these:

Virgin Islanders - Atlanta first and foremost and then Houston. There are nowhere near as many Virgin Islanders in NY and Orlando.

Trinidadians (Afro and Indo) - NYC and South Florida

Guyanese (Afro and Indo) - NYC and South Florida

Bajan (Barbados)- New York
Virgin Islander- New York, Orlando
Trinidadian- New York
other Eastern Caribbean- mostly New York and Miami
I would say in Miami, Boston, and New York, Afro Caribbean people represent over 50% of the blacks in those cities.

Sub Saharan African
Nigerian- Houston, New York, Washington DC
Senegalese- New York
Ghanian- New York
Cape Verdean- Boston
Somali- Minneapolis
other black African- not sure
It seems like Midwestern cities like Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland etc has the most "native black population" by percentage. None of those appear on these cities appear on the list (with exception to Minneapolis for Somali).

Cape Verdean and Afro Brazilian: Providence/Pawtucket RI/New Bedford MA

Sudanese(South): Omaha NE, Syracuse NY, Greensboro NC and Des Moines IA

You have to take into account that those cities, especially Detroit and Cleveland, are heavily "native" black, so the percentage is not going to be as high as cities with much smaller native black populations.

With that, Cleveland had a sizable Jamaican population on the eastside, but it seems like it's been established for 30-40 years so mostly assimilated and mixed in with the "native population."

I've attended a couple funerals and confirmations at St. Colman Catholic church on the westside and the congregation is heavily Ghanaian. The choir was probably 80 percent Ghanaian and all the alter boys were.

In recent years, Cleveland and Akron have also taken in refugees from the Congo.

I'm not sure how the total numbers compare to other cities, but it probably looks better than by comparing percentages.

Usually to cold for someone from the tropics, not only that it doesn't have large Caribbean/African populations already present like eastcoast port cities. The eastcoast cities are slightly more diverse, and usually have better economies than the rustbelt Midwest, and are closer together (So they tend to blend together, especially with diverse & expensive NYC losing many lower income minorities to nearby places).

Do you have any sources of these? In NYC I believe most live in Harlem and The Bronx.

Two things. One, The Rust Belt is pejorative term. Two, not all Rust Belt cities are in the Midwest. There's East Coast cities that are Rust Belt too.

Why are Spanish speaking countries excluded? Speaking Spanish doesn’t make anyone less black.

For Virgin Islanders? I do not think so. Brooklyn and Queens are home to the biggest Caribbean population in the city but there are some groups such as Antiguans, VI, Dominicans (not the DR) who actually are most likely to be found in Harlem and The Bronx.

Most Antiguans I know live in The Bronx.
