To what extent will a black man tan?

The title question says it all.  I have a supporting character who's black, an outdoorsy type, spends a lot of time in the sun.  Will the unprotected areas of his skin be darker in the summer?  Will he get tan lines?

I've made some Googling attempts, and I've come up with a lot of sites discussing racial issues, a recipe for mixing the drink known as a Black and Tan, and some information on Ireland that I mostly already knew.  *facepalm*

ETA:  You folks are awesome.  Thank you!!
