Yeah, thinking of black characters on TV at the moment...

there's Abbie Mills and her sister Jenny Mills in Sleepy Hollow

there's Gina Torres playing the very smart and competent Jessica Pearson in Suits

there's a bunch of characters in Orange is the new black

there's two black characters in How to Get Away with murder (Annalise Keating, an academic/lawyer, and two of her students, Michaela Pratt from a very wealthy background, Wes Gibbins from a very working class background). Also Keating's love interest, Nate Lahey.

there's John Diggle, the ex-army right hand man to Oliver Queen/the Arrow in Arrow

there's The Flash's adoptive father, Detective Joe West, and the flash's love interest, Iris West

...that's all I can think off off the top of my head. Which is to say: yes, there should definitely be more!
