Hitting (Q) for Spot Removal produces a black screen. 

The spot removal tools seem to work but I cannot see where they are working.  This is new with LR ver 11.0.  Ver 11.0.1 did not fix it

"Black Screen" -Is it possible you have activated the [Visualize Spots] function. (Keyboard shortcut [A] ) This turns your image to Black and White- The slider allows you to modify the contrast and 'find' the spots easier visually.

In a first step you should try is to switch off the GPU support from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps to fix the issue. 

Go to Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" > Restart Lightroom.

Another step is to try to reset the Lightroom preferences.

If this doesn't help we need more informations about your environment. 

Which operating system do you use? 

Which version of Lightroom do you use? 

Please post the exact version and not only phrases as "recent", "latest" and so on.
