Where the Black People At? If you’re looking for a city with a large Black population, head to Detroit, Memphis, Baltimore, New Orleans or Cleveland. However if you’re more discerning and looking for a City with a large percentage of Black professionals, you’ll need to head to totally different areas.

In conjunction with Black History month, Apartment List’s compiled a ranking of the Best Cities for Black Professionals – individuals who have graduated from college and are part of the workforce. Understanding that the Black community is diverse and includes many beliefs, interests, and cultures, Apartment List took a calculated – but reasonable — approach to reaching their conclusions.

Apartment List based the methodology in this report based on what they’ve learned as relevant to Black professionals:  Community & Representation, Economic Opportunity, Housing Opportunity, and Business Environment.
