Can the Light cantrip create effective darkness?

The Light cantrip allows for adjustments in the color of the light it produces.

"You touch one object that is no larger than 10 feet in any dimension. Until the spell ends, the object sheds bright light in a 20-foot radius and dim light for an additional 20 feet. The light can be colored as you like. Completely covering the object with something opaque blocks the light…"

Black is a color. In fact, there are different shades of black. If I choose black as the intended color while casting this cantrip, would I be creating an area of magical darkness?
