The 32209 zip code in Jacksonville, FL has a 98% Black population. There may be other zip codes with a higher Black percentage though. Zip-codes.com is a good resource but its not that efficient to search for percentages.

List of U.S. communities with African American majority populations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._neighborhoods
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...an_populations

Falcon, Mississippi is 99.68% black. Its Zip Code is 38628. At 288 people the town might be large enough it's not a shared zip code. That seems to be the case going by my online search.

Zip Code 38628

You might also look through the others to see which towns and neighborhoods over 95% black have their own zip codes.

I too have a client that is looking to decifer this percentage. I bought a software license from the "Cenus". This software had every demographic area "including the information you desire" in a quick easy format.

Chicago has a bunch.

60649: 48,574 - 94% black
60619: 73,528 - 97% black
60628: 82,502 - 95% black
60636: 47,043 - 96% black
60644: 49,541 - 94% black
60621: 42,410 - 99% black

Chicago is very segregated, and most people think of whites being segregated. It's actually the black population that's the most segregated. Even in the really "lilly white" areas of Chicago around Lincoln Park and up in the northwest corner of the city you're still going to see 20+% minority population, mostly asian and hispanic. The main zip code of the latino community is still around 20% white.

Chicago has an established Black community and many of the "all-black" zip codes today are created because of White flight and "Blockbusting." Not necessarily due to Black self-segregation.

If we're wanting big cities I might have guessed a zip code in Cleveland, Detroit, or Milwaukee.

I don't seem to have found any zip codes in Cleveland that are clearly over 95% black. 44112 was one of the "blackest" I found, but I don't think it looks that high.

http://www.city-data.com/zips/44112.html

I did find a zip code in Cleveland, near Parma, that looks to be whiter than 44112 is black.

http://www.city-data.com/zips/44134.html

In Detroit 48328 looks like it might be up to 96% black, but that's lower than some listed.

http://www.city-data.com/zips/48238.html

In Milwaukee 53206 is similar.

BELOW, IS THE LINK YOU NEED. It gives an interactive map of the whole USA, you can zoom in or zoom out - and see the exact racial percentage breakdowns of every single zip-code or census tract/ neighborhood: (you may have to click to install Adobe flash-player).
