i'm not entirely sure on how to specify the paragraph to change it to black.

i need help solving this.

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;

nav {
  background: #000

body {
  background-color: #fff;
  color: #000;

Hi Kaleb,

A paragraph tag is referenced using p.

Black as a hexadecimal colour would be #000000 or shorthand #000.

To put this together would be:

p {color: #000;}

Hope that helps.
