So I'm thinking of relocating to Louisville from Raleigh-Durham. I'm a 25 years old, single, black female. I want to know if anyone knows how's the African-American dating scene? What about black nightlife? And overall nightlife? And basically will I be able to develop a black social scene? Are the black people here mainly lower-class or mid to upper class?

As the only African-American regular here (I'm 23 so also a 20-something perspective), I'll post my thoughts.

From my observations Louisville's blacks are mostly middle and working class. Black nightlife here? Well there are a few clubs where you can have fun. For my birthday weekend I went to a pretty cool jazz club that was mostly black. To be honest if you are expecting a black professional atmosphere like Atlanta or DC you will be disappointed. I moved here from the DC metro last year so I know what a large black professional scene looks like.

I wonder if people expect Louisville's Black community to be similar to the scenes in those two areas? Also, with Fort Knox close by, wouldn't there a decent amount of single Black males in the area?

IDK if people expect Louisville to be like DC or Atlanta but I find that most black scenes that people desire in big cities are catered to professional blacks. The reality is that is not what Louisville has. While there are blacks here who have upper-middle-class white collar jobs, it is not a large number. The city is also somewhat segregated with most blacks residing on the West End and a few blacks sprinkled throughout the city.

As for the Ft. Knox thing. It is like this. I actually reside in the Ft. Knox area (not for much longer) and it is actually a good 50-55 minutes from most of the nightlife in downtown Louisville. And also a lot of the soliders at Ft. Knox are married or deployed. And of those who are single they (mostly) live right on or near the base in Radcliff or Elizabethtown unwilling to do the commute from Louisville to Knox.
