When I’m creating a black character, I typically use custom colors, with a dark brown skintone as a base. I check the hex value and tweak the RGB values until I’m satisfied. I then use a lighter-colored highlight, typically something slightly red, like the “Midtone Asian Dark” skintone.

I don’t have a solution that always works, because there are so many possible skintones and different types of lighting. Play around, try all kinds of different base color and highlight variations, see what fits the character.
