Columbus is always ranked as one of the best places for African Americans. The city has a high African American education level. The only negative usually pointed out is that a very large percentage of African Americans in Columbus city limits rent and do not own.

I think I read somewhere that the southern states actually produce a higher percentage of African-American college grads than other parts of the country. Can't seem to find that information though.

I don't think anywhere in California has a remarkably high percentage of well educated blacks. I know in public schools in California, African Americans are the lowest performing on state tests for English speakers, and are just a notch above English learners of any race. There may be pockets in California like pricier Ladera Heights or Baldwin Hills of Los Angeles, but these are just pockets. I think a lot of other states would be much much higher than CA.
