Do you know why it’s black like this?

Are you overwatering? It looks like it could be fungal. Here is a site I found for great info https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/black-leaves-on-pepper-plants.htm
There could be several reasons why they are turning black. If it’s not a fungal disease, it could possibly be leaf scorch from the sun. If you have recently fertilized it- it could be too strong or too much.
