Wow did people forget about Augusta.. A large majority of affluent blacks in Augusta, I know for sure live in the Belair Estates community

I have a family of 6. 4 children and my husband and I we are looking to relocate to Georgia but are looking to move near educated black and high school ratings, a gated community with complexes to keep our kids educated. We want them to see a community we’re less crime and blacks are successful. Education overall is number 1 in our home. I am a registered BSN Nurse. My husband works at a caterpillar... we also loved to eat at new places and would like to be near shopping centers... but love beautiful views.
Thank you any ideas?!

I would not consider Augusta a center of black affluence. Not in the least. I am familiar with the Belair Estates neighborhood as relatives lived there for years, at most you maybe had a few black families who lived there..hardly a mecca if black affluence. Augusta has a 60% black population but also a very high black poverty rate. But Augusta is not alone, same for Savannah, Macon, Columbus and Albany. Atlanta is really the only place in Georgia where you can point to a concentration of black wealth, especially the southwest suburbs around Cascade.

North Fulton and Forsyth county has a good bit of well-off people. It's a mixture in those areas, but I wouldn't say those areas are accepting of African-Americans. In fact, Oprah Winfrey had a show air I believe in 1986 where she had white people from Forsyth county express their feelings about black people living in Forsyth county. It wasn't nice at all.
Atlanta or Cascade would be the safest bet.

Oh, please. That ancient episode of Oprah in NO WAY reflects the character of Forsyth County in this day and age. Quite the contrary.

Forsythe county has changed tremendously in the past 33 years. It's nothing like that anymore

I'll take your word for it.

Unless I'm headed back home on I-75, my car doesn't go north of an Alpharetta-Kennesaw line. I'll take my chances with the Black Belt counties South of Atlanta any day.

To answer the other poster's question, while it's not an affluent city overall, Columbus surprisingly is amongst the top 10 cities in the country for black households making $100K+

Eagles Landing in Henry County might be a good fit for you.
