The city President Barack Obama calls home has almost 50 colleges, universities and professional institutes making it a magnet for black singles. The black community in Chicago is entrenched and close knit–the Chicago Defender, the city’s black-owned newspaper, is the only black daily in the nation.
Chicago’s convention and trade show center and its sporting events like Bulls and Bears games, attract many more singles. Chicago is great for concerts, including blues, jazz, R&B or classical. On any given day, you’ll find a show somewhere in the city, along with a lot of single blacks in attendance.
