The startling statistic shocked many who view Oakland as a historic African-American city in this country for decades. A community where the Black Panther Party sprung from its roots and many African American legends call home.

Oakland became one of the only big cities in California to decline in size, and lost 33,000 African-Americans in the last decade. It now has nearly as many white and Latino people as African Americans.
