She came to Canada in 1898 and married George Black in 1904. He was, at that time, a Yukon lawyer and future Member of Parliament. She stood in her husband's place when he was too ill to contest the federal general election in 1935. She won, thereby becoming the second woman to be elected to the Canadian House of Commons. In the general election of 1940, she stepped aside in favour of her husband since he had regained his health. Martha Black was a strong advocate of the Yukon and she was also a specialist on the flowers of the Yukon and British Columbia and the art of mounting them. She was the author of two books, Yukon Wild Flowers (1936) and My Seventy Years (1938).
