To begin, between 1970 and 1989, the Black population of the United
States increased by 35.3 percent, from 22.6 million to 30.6
million. Between 1985 and 1989, the Black population grew at
double the rate of the White population, increasing by 6.2
percent versus 3.1 percent for Whites, and 3.9 percent
nationwide.

This site tells us that the median age of all Black persons in the United States in
1989 was 27.7 while the median age for White persons was 33.6.

 
We also learned that in 2010, the number of Whites is projected to rise
to 228.9 million, whereas the number of Blacks is projected to rise to 38.8 million.

In 1989, the proportion of the total Black households residing in the South was 52.8 percent, approximately the same as in 1970, with an average household size of over three persons. The percentage of Blacks in the southern regions of the United States is projected to remain the same through the year 2000.
