Following a tutorial, I created a black Material and selected Faces in edit mode and hit 'Assign'. Nothing happens, however. What can I be doing wrong?

    $\begingroup$ Change your viewport to rendered mode (it's the farthest right of the four little circles at the top right of the viewport window.) $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 1, 2020 at 16:26

You are in solid mode. Materials are only displayed in rendered mode.

If you want to see a color for a material in solid mode use the viewport settings for the material.
