HelloLight can escape from a black hole only the nature of a black hole is to compress itself to a point where actually turns inside out and into a brand new dimension. So light can only escape when the time is right. Only they don't know this yet.
Jeffrey, you may be interested in the progress of someone else who is working on quantum gravity; an interesting article at: https://www.simonsfoundation.org/quanta/20140314-betting-on-the-future-of-quantum-gravity/
Light as you put it, is actually just a distubance in the electromagnetic field in a certain band of wavelengths. Higher energy wavelengths can escape a black holes visible event horzon (wavelngths in the human visible wave length band). The event horizon for higher energy wavelengths will be nearer to the black hole.So what does this tell us? Well it tells us that electromagnetic field is affected by gravity and when gravity is great enough it overcomes the electromagnetic fields ability to escape. i.e. it gets sucked into the black hole. So the normal form of a spreading wave is changed to be in one direction only. i.e. towards the center of the black hole.At least that is how I percieve it.
