Hmm, intersting!  I have seen problems with black screens before when using some newer versions of Tk which is the main reason we are using Tk 8.6.8 on macOS.  Let's try getting some more info:

/usr/local/bin/python3.8 -m test.pythoninfo

Also, which macOS Appearance are you using ( -> System Preferences -> General)?  If Dark or Auto, does switching to Light and restarting IDLE make a difference?  Any other unusual screen settings or third-party extensions?
