This is interesting. The term "Black Man" is really a play on words. Pearl had heard women talking about a "Black Man" and she interprets him as the Devil.

The Black Man is a myth about the devil, and the story says that he carries a large book and pen with which people write their names in blood. The Black Man then puts his mark on the person.
