African evolution was developed every day with new dances, songs, praises, cultures, religion, and more. Elite African American influenced plenty of factors around this slavery time. In urban black communities, it’s more of a “I look out for my kind.” In especially segregated neighborhoods, black people will make sure that each other are straight, such as black owned business will only serve other African Americans, since it was the same with white communities. In larger cities, there was a lot of more collision with businesses and races. The northern black communities also had more light skinned African Americans, which caused different mixes of color to be in the community rather than just white and dark skinned people. White people will hire different races to expand the business, while couples will experience different races also to just experience the beauty of any women. In the southern communities, there were dominant white people, and even some free slaves owned slaves themselves.
