Orangeburg, population 13,000, was chosen an All-American city in 2005. Located in central South Carolina this small town has several colleges (including top-rated Claflin University and South Carolina State University - both predominately black schools). It is known as the Garden City and has a lovely downtown. Orangeburg has an active and very successful redevelopment program. Photo of town square courtesy of Wikipedia and Akhenaton06.
People who like living in a college town enjoy it here. Claflin University is an historic black university so educated African-Americans will feel comfortable (the town is 67% black). Religion is important as well with Southern Methodist College in town as well.
