February marks the beginning of Black History Month, and there’s no better time than now to support our Black community in all ways possible. One way to do that is by taking the time to intentionally seek out and support Black influencers and content creators across social media platforms. Doing this brings well-deserved attention to creators that might get overlooked, who put in time and dedication to building a platform for their followers. To make your search for these Black creators easier, listed below are eight Black creators on TikTok who are doing some amazing things.
Chrys the Author, AKA “your opinionated gay cousin,” uses her platform to comment on other TikTok videos dealing with social and political issues as well as pop culture. If you are looking for a queer creator who is open and brutally honest about issues ranging from homosexuality to colorism to toxic masculinity, then you should check out her page.
Mamadou Ndiaye has created a page dedicated to satire based on animal facts. Most of his videos reveal how terrifying nature actually can be, but every once in a while he also includes wholesome animal stories.

His page is the place to go if you’re the type of person who enjoys thinking deeply about life.
Danisha is another creator whose content consists of commentary on TikTok videos from other users. She comments on a multitude of topics, but she maintains her focus on protecting women’s rights.
