Socratic method of teaching, nice.

p { color: #000; } that should give all the paragraphs on the page a color of black. you missed the p before { color: #000; }

Hey Emily, I added 3 backticks before and after the code you copied and pasted then cleaned up the white spacing to make it easier to understand.

a { text-decoration: none; }

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

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

h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

{ color: #000; }

The issue seems to be the last item, '{color:#000;}'.

Try adding the letter 'p' in front of the curly bracket to indicate paragraph.

So you should have

a { text-decoration: none; }

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

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

h1, h2 { color: #fff; }

p { color: #000; }
