For some moms, TikTok isn’t just a social media platform. It’s a universal hub to be entertained, build their business, make real connections, get answers, be a resource, or reclaim their identity outside of being a mom. (So don’t be surprised if you see videos of moms living their best lives without a kid on their hip.)
Black moms on TikTok are no different. Yet, they are less likely to get the views, brand deals and recognition that others on TikTok, who are just as talented and skilled, receive. According to a Business Insider report, it’s not uncommon for Black influencers to receive lesser pay from marketers in comparison to white influencers with a smaller following.
Whether you are looking to get another perspective, be an ally, learn more about specific topics or need another way to spend your me time, here are 16 Black moms on TikTok who are definitely worth the follow.
