TikTok is the app of the year! Whether you’ve made one, have gotten sent a TikTok from a friend, or even want to be TikTok famous, this app has changed the social media game. It’s a unique platform that allows people of all backgrounds, identities, and cultures to express themselves via video.
I don’t know about you, but TikTok has shown me a lot! From skincare routines and amazing Amazon products to crazy dance trends and hilarious pranks. One thing, however, that I have absolutely loved about TikTok is the number of beautiful Black creators. And what better time than now to highlight some of these wonderful content creators? So without further ado, here are 10 Black TikTokers that need to be on your FYP.
1. Taj Reed, @donidarkowitz
Our first TikToker is @donidarkowitz. Known as Taj Reed, her TikToks show you her show-stopping makeup looks. All of her videos are synched PERFECTLY to popular TikTok songs, and the end result is flawless! But don’t take my word for it, go like and follow her for yourself!
2. Dasia Janae, @dajjrambo
Another talented TikToker is @dajjrambo also known as Dasia Janae. Dasia’s content centers around makeup tutorials and she also shows off her DIY skills in her room renovations and sneaker art. If you watch her videos, you might even catch her cute kiddos, Noelle and Naz!

8. Drea, @dreaknowsbest
Another funny TikToker is @dreaknowsbest. Drea is a Nigerian American who also graduated with a major in Engineering. She got started on Vine and now she shows off her self-deprecating comedy on TikTok.
9. Kendra Oyesanya, @mizzko
If you love getting up and showing off your dance moves, then you need to follow @mizzko. Kendra Oyesanya’s dancing is effortless! One great thing about MizzKO is that she takes pride in not looking like the “typical” dancer and loves the things that make her special and unique.
Looking to get educated? Then look no farther than our last TikToker on the list: 7th-grade teacher @mistercapehart. He uses his platform to speak out about racial injustices that take place in the Black community. He also provides amazing daily affirmations and is not afraid to directly respond to his commenters.
