The code for black is #000 so you would add this at the end:

p {
color:#000
}

A good way about thinking about it is that 0 is a lack of a value so for a hexadecimal color #000000 is 0 red, 0 green, 0 blue.

Since hexadecimal values go 0123456789abcdef, #FFFFFF is white, think about it as 100% red, 100% green and 100% blue.

By mixing the values for any different RGB color you can make other colors, for instance #00FF00 would be green, #0000FF would be blue, and so on...
