Houston is home to nearly 1 million Blacks. It is consistently ranked as one of the top ten cities based on median household income, households earning more than $100,000 annually, business ownership, college graduates and homeowners. Additionally, we have the lowest unemployment and home loan rejection rates. From 1930 to today, the Defender has served the Houston area as a trusted and credible source of information.
