Overall it does make sense that there was more of a vibrant business districts throughout Black communities due to segragation. Afterwards, it spreadout to other areas of said places.
Source? I'm thinking it had to come from somewhere or some type of calculation from those times. Yeah, there was more of a community for melanated people during those times even though cards were stacked against the society-wise.

I just read it and it makes sense. My thing is, who came up with it enough to go back and come up with a certain number from back in the 1920s? Like you mentioned, there was a thriving community and the dollar recirculation was at a much higher rate than today. For sure.

Currently, just finished reading about what happened in Longview, Texas' Red Summer craziness: Longview Race Riot of 1919.

Most likely rooted in misinformation or loose knit economic analysis. I would expect a formula or diagram would show an individual how to calculate such circulation.

The business districts strive due to the times generally.

This article on Jesse Binga in Chicago was a good one. Bad ending though.

It was known as Mooree Quarters and part of Oxford, Alabama. It was majority "black" so that meant blacks held sway in elections since they could vote. The mayor of Oxford had the city lines redrawn and annexed Mooree Quarters away. Mooree Quarters became Hobson City, Alabama in August 1899.

The above was a good story but 1919 rolled around and the kkk sent out death threats to the mayor of this small "black" town because they didn't like the idea of blacks in leadership positions and just threatened to come against the small town.

(Sometimes, you just have to laugh at the absurdity of this deep hatred. A small town can't even govern themselves in one's eyes? Klan people were so triggered that a "black" person dared call himself a mayor of a town that was intentionally drawn out of Oxford. Terrorists behavior is pathetic)
