Hello TeXhax!

I am having a little beamer problem that I can't seem to figure out.
The below example should illustrate my problem. I want to change the
text colour of the selected section/subsection to black instead of
white as the white is difficult to see. This example should run. Has
anyone ever attempted to change those colours before?

Sam

%% Code

\documentclass{beamer}[14pt]
\usepackage{beamerthemesplit}

%% I want to use this pre-defined colour
\definecolor{customgreen}{cmyk}{0.95,0.15,0.62,0.58}
\mode<presentation>

\usetheme{Goettingen}
\setbeamertemplate{footline}[frame number]

\usecolortheme[named=customgreen]{structure}
\useinnertheme{circles}
\usefonttheme[onlymath]{serif}
\setbeamersize{sidebar width right=1.9cm}

Could the text colour of the sub-heading be changed to black?
