    Getting a job is easier now for all Americans, including African-Americans.

    Black unemployment fell to 9.1% in July, the lowest since April 2008, according to a Labor Department report released Friday. It’s especially encouraging given that unemployment for African-Americans was 11.4% last July.

    “Now, you’re starting to see a broad recovery which is reaching groups with high unemployment rates like African-Americans and teens,” said Michael Madowitz, an economist at the American Center for Progress.
