Just curious are there any neighborhoods or suburbs of Nashville that have a larger wealthy black population, similar to D.C and Atlanta?

I live in Atlanta but visit Nashville quite often but from what I have seen, Blacks seem to have a strong presence in the City, as well as a ton of other minorities and foreigners. Can't say I know of majority black suburbs because I don't live their but I have seen plenty of well off Blacks which I have seen scattered throughout the City. The funny part is most of the blacks I saw in the area seem to be more well off IMO. Area's around TSU seem like the typical area around the black college areas, similar to ours, Morehouse, Spellman, Clark Atlanta etc. but is quickly changing. I will say there are a few black celebrities that live in the Nashville, one being Jill Scott that lives in Franklin, a suburb just south of the city. Believe it or not it Nashville seems more diverse than most think or expects with imo most populations scattered throughout. Antioch, a district on the South side of the city seem to have a large foreign born and immigrant population. Plenty of Kurds, Africans, West Indians, and Hispanics in the Area as well. If you are looking for a city like Atlanta where blacks are in just one concentrated area and Whites are just in there area, not gonna happen. If you are looking for an all White city in Nashville which a lot of blacks expect, that's not gonna happen either. It seems more mixed up in Nashville, that's IMO from visiting. Atlanta just seems more segregated than Nashville to me, just my opinion.

The last sentence the above poster seems accurate to me. I'm not too familiar with Atlanta but as far as Nashville is concerned, the black population who is well-off financially seems to just live in areas that are more geared towards high income rather than demographics. It seems that many wealthier people tend to live in the same areas regardless of race. Is the black population small in certain "wealthier" suburbs like Brentwood, Mt Juliet, Hendersonville and to a lesser extent Franklin? Sure, but there's still a bit. That said, the city of Nashville is pretty diverse and generally carries a larger black population regardless of wealth.

The areas named above are traditionally the places where upper income blacks have lived. Because they're a much smaller percentage of the population than Atlanta (I've lived in both), they tend to be more integrated into the other neighborhoods across all socioeconomic strata. My sister has a home in Green Hills near David Lipscomb University, an upper middle area, and there are people of all races out walking the streets, mowing lawns, biking, mingling, etc. just about every time I visit her.

They are not in one part of town or suburb. Nashville is a well integrated city and metro.

I am intrigued. I will be visiting sometime next year. I am impressed with the exceptional low tax taxes, nice real estate and low unemployment.
