An autosomal test like the new ancestrydna test, the Family Tree DNA Family Finder test, or 23andme's dna test should show if a person has African/Black ancestry. Since a person receives half of their dna from each parent, male of female, anyone can take an autosomal test to find possible ancestry from any ancestor on any line of descent. Unlike a Ydna test which will only trace the Y line from male to male or the Mitochondrial (Mtdna) test which tests the line from a persons mother-to grandmother-to greatgrandmother etc. Hope that helps.
