coding effects not showing up anymore

I want to create a translucent color behind white text so that the text stands out on top of a background photograph. 

I found online the code to do this. I found the block ID for the text block, and pasted it into the custom css area - and voila! a translucent gray box behind my text. Perfect. But now, days later, when I look at my site, there is no color behind my text, but the code is still there. 

 

Here's the code I used - it worked perfectly, but then it didn't:

 

#block-64433ba78723b747d71d { background: rgba(0,0,0,.5);      }
