What do the chicks look like?  A black sussex would be a black chicken with sussex type.  But you never know with hatcheries.   hatcheries mainly only have speckled sussex though.  I've personally never seen "black" sussex.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

There's no such thing... I think they just labeled it incorrectly like they do with Easter Eggers, labeling them as true Ameraucanas

A teenager that is already known as "that chicken lady" haha can never have too many chickens

Nope. I must have misunderstood him. They are black sexlink. Oddly enough, all have light dots on their heads. Explains why there was no other type in the store brooder with them.

Historically, there was a Black Sussex in the first half of the last century. They were bred from Brown sussex until they were black. They never caught on and  died out with their creator's passing. There was also a Cuckoo Sussex being bred on one of the offshore British Isles. It never caught on and died out too. Recently a Cuckoo Sussex cropped up at Greenfire Farms and was  sold to a lady who is now reviving the color variety.
