Should you do this and get others to do the same, I promise you, the run down houses and the blight that plaque our community would cease to exist, because all that is needed is for those of us who know about code enforecement, or can assist children with homework, etc to go back and give back and we will be richer for it because we will effect the change of perception about our community.

You are not an affluent black person just because you can afford to live next door to white people, you are an affluent black person when white people want to live next door to you.
Love your philosophy!!!!!!

Or the Original Poster can move to the affluent area they are looking for, and spend time volunteering. Moving into a neighborhood with the intention of being a role model is a nice idea, but its not for everyone.

Anywhere but Cobb, Gwinnett, and Henry Co. should be sufficent. Stay along the Metro ATL line...College Park is a nice town.

Atlanta is for you definitely. You can get information from a website that will fill in a bunch of stuff when I type it but just type in access (atl).com and you can even view the Journal Constitution from that site. (Spell out the word Atlanta.) Now I will put it in and you will see what all gets added...lol

accessatlanta.com
ok it didn't do it that time! Good luck and come on down.

There are also parts of Fairburn (Fayette County Fairburn near Evander Holyfield's House), and Fayetteville (where many African-American Celebrities live) that are also home to affluent African-Americans (particularly the subdivisions along Hwy 279 or better known as Evander Holyfield Hwy). Country Lake is one of them, but there are quite a few. And you're in Fayette County, so you are getting great schools.

When you say "anywhere but Cobb, Gwinnett, and Henry Co.", what makes these counties (according to your opinion) ones to avoid. I will be checking out Gwinnett next week as a prospective place to live (Lawrenceville). If you would be so kind, could you give me some clarity of your reply?

I posted something in the Atlanta forum about south Fulton county, but don't have any repsonses yet. Someone brought up a point to me that although the area is great and booming now, the resale may be tough b/c it's African-American. There aren't alot of areas with little traffic to downtown where you can still live in a subdivision. That made me widen my search a bit, but the only thing I come up with is northern Decatur. Does anyone have resale experience they could share on SW?

If you live in these affluent areas such as parts of Fairburn and areas west down I20 can the shopping match that of Lenox mall and around the Sandy Spings and Buckhead area?

I've visited ATL last week and staying in Buckhead and toured the Northside and all we saw were shops after shops after shops up Roswell Rd NE. We loved it. Do these other area have these amenities or are these area just homes and you have to drive a great distance for decent shopping?

Atlanta is such a racially diverse city, that the "affluent" can live whereever they want to. Even though the original poster DID mention "black" in the post, I'm going to list my favorite areas regardless....

1. Dunwoody & Perimeter area
2. Sandy Springs
3. Duluth
4. Roswell/Alpharetta
5. East Cobb county
6. Marietta
7. Lilburn

...and of course, for the VERY affluent,...Buckhead!

I'm certain that original poster's family would be welcome in any of the areas listed above. Welcome to Atlanta!
