Memphis Dropped from Black Enterprise "Best Cities" List

Posted on Thu, Apr 19, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The May 2007 issue of Black Enterprise magazine has compiled a list of the 10 best cities in America for African Americans, considering household income, black-owned businesses, number of college graduates, home-loan rejections, and other factors.

Washington, D.C. was ranked number one, closely followed by Atlanta. Also making the top-10 was Nashville.

Memphis, which made the list in 2004, the last time it was compiled, dropped out this year because African Americans here “cited dissatisfaction with several key living standards.”
