Large Asian and Jewish populations.

Not many blacks and Latinos, so no, not "multiculty." A lot of NJ towns are Jewish/Asian these days. In addition to CH/Voorhees, there's Marlboro, Livingston, Highland Park, West Windsor...

Blacks are concentrated in western sections of CH near Haddonfield. I know several and if you drive down 561 in that area you're more than likely to spot some. I don't know any Latinos in CH but judging from how many I see chatting away in Spanish at the shopping centers I'd venture to say there are probably quite a few of those there as well. It'd be ignorant of me to assume they all live in Pennsauken or Camden, no? Besides, you don't need to have every single group to fit the definition of multiculturalism.

Those are in Central/North Jersey, not really helping the OP.

I didn't say there were "no" blacks or Latinos, only that the proportions are fairly small (6% is big enough to be noticeable but is still modest). As a whole. There are a lot of black people in Ardmore, but that doesn't make Lower Merion a "multiculty" township. Those other towns were comparisons, not suggestions... Besides, the OP seems potentially okay with being somewhere 90-95% white vs. 80-85% white.

Haddonfield actually became less black between 2000 and 2010, so you can rest easy in that regard. More Jews are moving in though, and the Asians will eventually follow.

Perfectly okay with that, just keep Camden out.

Don't think Haddonfield needs to worry about that one. Audubon, Oaklyn, etc. may someday be a different story, but for now those seem fine despite their proximity.

Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Mount Ephraim and Gloucester are already on that track. I'm afraid someday is today.

I'm pretty sure Brooklawn was featured in a book about predominately black small towns in Southern NJ. It was called something like Small Towns Black Lives. It was written years, decades ago.

There used to be a couple of really good roadside BBQ places in the area. I'm sure they're gone now.

I believe you're thinking of Lawnside, which IIRC was founded by/for freed slaves. As of the 2010 census, Brooklawn was only 5.3% black.

Haddonfield also had the distinction of having a segregated school district in the 1950's. few people lived in Cherry Hill before 1950 so it did not.
