Do you wish to have a black field w/ white text, over part of an existing Video Clip, or do you want just a black field w/ white text and not have any Video showing through?
For the latter, just do a Title in Titler, w/ white text, and place that on the Timeline.
For the former, let us know the exact details, as that is slightly different.
[Edit] as a little background, when in Titler, you will see a "black" background, but that is really Transparent. However, if placed on the Timeline, with nothing below it, it will show black.
