Forgive me as this doesb't really relate to Kansas City however I'm living in a basement that has some black mold. I torn off all the ceiling and everything else that had it now all that's left is the white wall. Does anyone know will I be ok if I apply bleach to it every so often and use Kilz?

You need to find the source of the mold, which is always moisture. There's a leaky faucet, A/C, roof, or something somewhere you need to take care of or it will keep coming back.

Bleach doesn't kill mold, it just turns it white. Get a product that's made for mold at a hardware store.

Mold can be very bad for your health. Is there any chance you could move? Or, if nothing else, drag your bed to the opposite end of the basement so you're not breathing this stuff in all night.

I would move. I had a friend whose Olympic career was almost ruined due to breathing mold spores.

Or if you are a religious fundamentalist: Leviticus 13:47-59 NIV - Regulations About Defiling Molds - Bible Gateway

Will a mold removing sealer do anything?
