Oh and I have a black female too. Venus' mother is black and her father is very melanistic bi color (black face, slight tan on his legs).
Venus did have some of that lighter brown fur, but not all over. Just on her head. When she was coming into adult coat at 3 - 4 months.

I have duct tape and I am not afraid to use it.
