exact duplicate of this one I think: How to change color for a block of texts? – Rico Jan 31 '13 at 20:08

why not use the xcolor package?

Normally

\textcolor{black}{text}


should do what you want

for the whole itemize

{\color{black}\begin{itemize}
\item
\item
\end{itemize}}


should do the trick.

I typed \usepackage{xcolor} in the preable and used your second suggestion to no avail. – user25318 Jan 31 '13 at 19:46
but the \textcolor{}{text} worked. Thanks. – user25318 Jan 31 '13 at 19:57
