Could you elaborate for us please? Phrased as it is your question is too vague to answer. It would require an entire textbook to cover precisely. :)

Exactly what is it that you'd like to know about black holes? Basically all they are, are objects whose entire mass is confined to a region of space so small that the gravitational acceleration near the center is so strong that even light can't escape. The sphere having that radius and whose center is that dense mass is called the event horizon.
