DNA test to find out if you have Black ancestry?

Posted: 1357232354000
Classification: Query
I've traced an individual's line back to an 1850 orphan who was variously identified as Black, Mulatto, Irish, and White on the different documentation I've found. Based on this documentation & family lore, I believe he may have been half Irish & half Black.

There are no males to be tested in this line but the female willing to be tested is the great-granddaughter of the ancestor in question, following a male line down to her.

Is there any DNA test she can have that will confirm the Black ancestry?
