Ask ARP: What’s the best neighborhood for a transracial family?

Dear Anti-Racist Parent,

My American family is transracial: my husband and I are white, and our kids, who were adopted from Ethiopia, are black. We are now living in Egypt, but we always think about where we’d like to live once we move back to the US. Where is the best place for a transracial family to live?

We want someplace with good public schools, where we can afford to live in an integrated or black neighborhood (it’s okay if my husband and I are in the minority), and preferably someplace where we’d interact with a range of people on a daily basis. I’d love to hear about particular neighborhoods in particular cities, not just cities themselves. Thanks!
