Atlanta is a large booming city, and seems to be a popular place for everyone to relocate to.

The best city is the city you want to be in.

Default That's a louded question...

Do you mean a city where blacks are dominate, or a city where blacks are most successful? Many people would say Atlanta, but, historically, Seattle has had the strongest black middle-class.

I agree with the above poster. A lot of things go into "the best city" for anyone.

Do you want a majority black city, or one with an almost equal amount of all races? Do you want a college town? What about sports? Are you single? There are a lot of variables that go into it.

I would say any major city. Come on up here to Seattle. I'm black and I'm loving life here in Seattle.
