    FINDING a place to call home can he a challenge for anyone. But for Black women, who must weigh factors such as lifestyle, safety, culture and professional outlook, it call be especially daunting. Today's Sister wants to find a city where she can have it all--a good job, good opportunities and, for the single Black woman, good men.
    Considering those desires, EBONY has compiled a list of 10 cities that Rank among the best places for Black women to live. Our findings may surprise you. Some cities you might expect to find on the list--such as Washington, D.C., and New York City--didn't make the cut when we stacked them against smaller Southern and Midwestern metropolises like Memphis and Cleveland.
    "Bigger isn't necessarily better," says Dr. Larry E. Davis, author of Black and Single. "Bigger cities may have more numbers, but they may be more difficult places to meet people because people are more guarded. Some of the smaller places may show more friendliness and charm."
    Unconvinced? We go right to the source--Black women and men who live in the 10 featured cities--to find out why these cities are so attractive. Other areas worth examining, according to our experts, include Seattle, Austin, Charleston, S.C., Charlotte, N.C., Nashville and Minneapolis, the only major city with a Black woman mayor.http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1077/is_5_55/ai_60059081/?tag=content;col1

    I'm not A woman but i have notice black women becoming more abroad
    and how these women are finding there way in every way in Chi-town

    I think the only fear that many women have here is the crime rate against women

    Iono!
    Atlanta Really? Even with all those gay blk men and single women? No Thanks!
    With Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit and Memphis, I think they put professional outlook before safety.smh
    Norfolk and Dallas, I can believe they are decent place for blk women to live.
    Seattle? Girl No! If blk men are physically, mentally or emotionally unavailable what's the point in moving there?

    I'd say ATL is more so a great city for Black men. The ratio of women to men is already around 5:1 and growing bigger with the constant expansion of the ****** phenomenon. I don't mind though. More women for me!

    I agree this is not the best list...I do not care for big cities.The only ones i would recommend on the list would be
    Norfork,Va.
    Dallas,Texas
    Memphis,Tn.
    and Charlotte,N.C.[Charlotte is big but not as crime ridden as Philly,Detroit,Atanta and others]
