Often there will be ceiling fans or other kinds of lights that only have 2 black wires, making it very hard to figure out which goes where. You will need to find which wire is the neutral to connect to the white wire in your wall box, the way you do this is to look closely at the two wires and one should be different. One will be marked with a rib along the plastic coating or a white stripe perhaps, you can safely connect this wire to the neutral or white wire and the other one to the black to make your light work properly.
