Black Americans? Negros? African Americans?

What is the politically correct term for referring to an American citizen of African descent, i.e Denzel Washington, Beyonce etc? I REALLY hope no one taskes this as racism, I just honestly don't know what the polictially correct term is.

Just to give a bit of context to this question, I'm an Australian and honest to God, the first time I saw the race of the people in question was when I visited California, aged 18.
