I hope you didn't eat it!
Any food that turns black or green should be disposed of pronto. Never a good sign!
I can't think of any breaded food that benefits from being refrigerated overnight prior to cooking.

Don’t eat it and throw away!

This is the kind of dish that needs to be the day you buy the shrimp or the same day you defrost it, also leftovers will not hold up well since the breading will get soggy

Which was it, black or green? Was it the breading or the meat that turned colour? Either way, throw it out

Black but wanted to know if it was black cause the breading or I kept it refrigerated for a day

If anything associated with seafood turns black or green, throw it away. You could get very ill. Once something is breaded it should be cooked right away.
