Lack of knowledge keeps you ignorant. The less people know the less people grow

Not surprised as Jacksonville was another city with a pretty strong Black middle class and Raines High used to be a very good HS serving the Black community. Dunbar High in DC was like that as well.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Sweet Auburn, in Atlanta.

For decades, this was THE social, political, spritual and business hub of black Atlanta & the Southeast.

SPIRIT OF SWEET AUBURN

Interesting--however I think that simetime was referring to another example of a prosperous black community that was destroyed as a result of the sporadic outbreak of ethnic cleansing or racial pogroms of the late 19th/early 20th Centuries.

You are right, and that question stemmed from another post questioning why blacks can't do better in america
