It may be further south than you would want to go but I would recommend Valdosta. It is a large enough town to support any business and it is growing quickly so being in RE and Ins you can build your business up quick here because the town is still small enough that you will not have to struggle to get your name known. Every race and finanical status work hand and hand so even though there are affluent subdivisions and areas of town you will not have the segreation seen amongst the neighbors of ATL. Even other affluent blacks will tear you apart for your success if you don't choose correctly there. Others out side of metro ATL would be Macon/Warner Robins and Columbus. If you wish to stay in the ATL area I would highly recommend somewhere in the Fayette County area on the southside and Alpharetta on the northside. I would recomend avoiding Savannah and Albany unless you have very strong will and are willing to put effort into improving the community. Best of wishes and good luck.

My first reaction to your post was "anywhere you darn well please" However if you wish to live in an area exclusive for affluent African Americans you should take that up with a high end realtor. If you are not from the south I would suggest you read a book called "Our Kind Of People" It will tell you quite a bit about wealthy southern black society.

Try Gwinnett County, just outside of the DeKalb County line. I graduated from Parkview in 1987 and had never gone to school with a black person. Now the concentration is about 50/50 and there are wonderful upper, middleclass families that have moved in due to the wonderful schools. Just go check it out! I think you'll like it!

Any information shared would be much appreciated!!
The black affluent live the same place as the white affluent.

The most affluent AA's in Macon do live in those areas, though sparsely scattered around in various majority white neighborhoods.

However, the highest concentration of middle class blacks living in a single area are various neighborhoods right along the Bibb and Jones County line in East Macon.

Ruby Dr. in Jones County just across the county line.
Belvedere Manor
Lake Arrowhead
Clifton Ridge Sub-Division

i.e. People like the Hutchings Family, whom the Career Center was named after, lived out here before the dad died and his wife moved. The sons are still doctors in town. Otis Redding's daughter used to stay next to my Grandparents out this way before she moved. I used to play with his grandson when we were kids.

There are many areas that fit what you described, but we may need some more detail.

Many areas of Georgia and in Atlanta area sound like what you mentioned, but the public schools vary from good to abysmal. Outside of the greater Atlanta metro area they're mostly on the low end.
Are you considering placing your 12 yr old in private school?

Do you have an interest in cultural events, museums, opera, local theatre, continuing education?

Or do you just envision the suburban lifestyle revolving around school, kids sports, and a golf course?

My perception as well.

regardless of race. Seems the "Affluent" Black I know, do not base any part of their life around race. They are far above that, and look for nicely kept areas. if they choose gated community, or large acreage, they look for good schools private or public.

at least the ones I know..... have broken away from the Race issues and are part of the problem solving group of Americans instead of being part of the division of Americans < Americans.
