p {
   color: black;
}

or with hexdecimal:

p {
   color: #000;
}

or for RGB colour:

p {
   color: rgb(0,0,0);
}

p is your selector, selecting all

<p>

tags in your HTML, then the rules you apply to your selector are within the curly brackets (braces).

If you need any more help understanding let me know :)
