African American City Guides
BlackCityInfo.com is a collection of city guides that direct users to businesses, churches, entertainment events, community info, dining, special events, and so much more.
BlackCityInfo.com helps interested ones find their way around the black community in America. Many businesses have good products to offer but struggle with the high cost of advertising which increases their chance of failure.
We aim to change that. We post information free of charge.
But we need African-Americans to get excited about their community by getting involved and helping others in learning about their city. Outdated or erroneous information? Let us know, and we will update.
Our website is not exclusive to African-Americans but encourage all ethnicities to participate and become familiar with what is going on in the black community.
