Yes, as already stated. Black people do tan( or get darker.) I myself am lighter compared to the blacker side of my race. But.......I do have a buddy soooo black, that he does not get darker, at least not visibly to the eyes.

In my younger years, I was absolutely oblivious to what a sunburn was. I spent all of my days as a child baking in the sun from Japan to California. It wasn't until sometime around the age of 17-18 I experienced my first sunburn in Florida. I absolutely thought something was medically wrong with me. It was horrible I must admit. I constantly thought I had received some sort of chemical burn and finally went to the doctor.......needless to say, I felt pretty stupid once told it was just a sunburn.
