Another MI area that comes to mind is the Willow Run area of Ypsilanti Township in the Ann Arbor area. It used to have its own school district, which has since dissolved. Ypsilanti: Willow Run – Michigan History

Another area is the Flats section of Holyoke MA outside of Springfield.

In between Chicago and Gary, East Chicago and Hammond IN would fit.

Ansonia CT outside of New Haven is another such community. It is more of a satellite city/exurb though. This man was born there: Greene, Lorenzo Johnston (1899-1988) | The Black Past: Remembered and Reclaimed

Places on the Belmont County Ohio side of the Wheeling WV-OH metro such as Bellaire, Bridgeport and Martins Ferry would also fit in this regard.

While not suburban, Spencer Township west of Toledo is another such community. It even had its own school district by the name of Spencer-Sharples from 1948-1980 that was predominantly black, but the students from that former district go to Toledo Public or Springfield Local schools. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spence...chool_District

While it is actually more of a satellite city, Xenia OH outside of Dayton and in that metro fits otherwise. It also has Wilberforce with its 2 HBCU’s adjacent to it.
