Most of south AL is this way.
I was born and raised in a deep purple county which has just under 100K people and is 62% Black. The county seat and largest city is around 14K and 75% Black. SC in particular has stringent annexation laws so many Black folks in the country have an address with the town closest to them but aren't within the actual municipal limits; that's the case for where my parents live. But Black folks are highly visible in all corners of the county. I'm more than certain that's the case for the actual deep purple counties in Alabama as well, and probably the fuschia counties with Black populations over 40%.

That's not quite true.

But it's nothing like further south. Maryland's black belt disappeared by the end of the twentieth century because three major cities, including a very large one (Philadelphia), were able to pull on the black populations there.
