Where does Columbus rank?
As our own Mat Myers would say, “we live in a beautiful city.” Columbus is a diverse city but is it focusing enough on black male achievement?
According to a recent report by the CBMA (Campaign for Black Male Achievement), we have some work to do. The report, titled, Promise of Place: Building Beloved Communities for Black Men and Boys, gauges city-level commitment to Black men through a city index.
Five factors: demographics, city-led commitment, CBMA membership, programs and target funding help score the cities. Shawn Dove, the CEO for Campaign for Black Male Achievement, said, “CBMA celebrates a decade of working to uplift Black men and boys as assets to our communities and our country, we issued this report to track city-level commitment, investment and action to advance Black Male Achievement.”
Here is the list of the Top 10 cities in the CBMA report:
- Washington, D.C.
- Oakland, California
- New Orleans
- Jackson, Mississippi
- New York City
- Charlottesville, Virginia
The list consists of 50 cities. Cleveland came in #25 with a city score of 52. Columbus came in at #38 with a city score of 45.
Not all bad news, if you are interested the CBMA also give detailed guidelines to help cities like Columbus and Cleveland improve their scores while improving black male achievement. You can go here to read more about the CBMA and download the official report.
