set color of paragraphs to black

I'm asked to set paragraph color to black (#111), but it doesn't work, what am I doing wrong?

a {
  text-decoration: none;

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

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
h1, h2 {
  color: #fff
p {
  color: #111

Your color #111 is not black, even though it may look like it.

:point_right: Black is #000 (or #000000).
