Can you not make your own?

Open up paint or photoshop of some sort and fill an area black. Save the image as a png and then place on your phones memory card. Then on the phone set your wallpaper from the gallery and select the black image.

The simplest way to create a black image is to keep the phone with camera down on desk (so that no light falls on the camera) and shooting an image.

Then simply set the recently shot image as your wall paper. :)

I developed an app named Color Wallpaper that does this. It's free and available on the Android Market. There are many other colors to choose from besides black.
