Source is ACS, which just released its 2018 estimates:

Census profile: Pittsburgh, PA

https://data.census.gov/cedsci/all?....isplayedRow=15

You can see what all these cities black populations were in 2010 here:

Pittsburgh, PA Population - Census 2010 and 2000 Interactive Map, Demographics, Statistics, Quick Facts - CensusViewer

NOTE:

These figures are all based on self-identified, non-Hispanic blacks, and includes anybody who self-identified with a black ethnicity (so yes, this includes Caribs). We all realize that virtually all blacks of the diaspora are "mixed" or biracial/multiracial; however, self-identified multiracial blacks only account for about 1.8% of US population, and only about 12.9% of all blacks...

The total black population is estimated to be 14.1%, population 46,261,485. That includes self-identified Afro-Latinos, blasians, black/whites, Native/blacks, etc...

Because the figures I posted specifically reference only those who represent themselves as black, it goes without saying that virtually every city's black population ticks upward once you account for all combinations of blacks. So for example, the total population of all people who identify with at least part black in NY is 26.1% (up from 21.7% just black)...

In LA, its 9.9% (8.4% just black); in Chi, its 30.7% (29%); in DC, its 47.5% (44.4%); in Houston, its 23.3% (22%). And so on and so forth...

This is just a personal thing, but just speaking for myself, alot of people who self-identify as multi-racially black dissociate themselves from the larger black experience, and because of that, I don't feel a particular sense to include those who exclude their blackness, but I'll double back and post all of the combined, total black populations if you guys request that...

And I did I similar thread as this last year with the 2017 ACS figures, but now that '18 is available thread needed an update and I can't find the old thread I created...

Shocked to see Austin, Ft. Worth, Phoenix and Minneapolis growing like they are. Good deal.

Miami is dropping like crazy but it kind of make sense Miami is not a great city for all sectors of employment. Still lots of tourism based industry and jobs. Almost all the Californians cities are posting losses in the black population. It's tragic because a lot of peoples fathers and grandfathers helped to build California after the gold rushes and the world wars. Cost of living is pushing black people and everyone else out of California.

One of the issues with Miami is the gentrification of older black communities such as Overtown, Brownsville, Little Haiti and even Liberty City. The "hoods" have become very valuable.
Even the "Pork & beans" projects in Liberty City is being razed :

It's crazy Oakland's black population is now the same as Boston and Pittsburgh. It was almost 50% in 1980. SF is now less black than Portland....probably all relegated to Hunter's Point and Sixth Street.
