A black hole may carry axionic charge in a theory which has gravity coupled to a massless two-form Kalb-Ramond field. We show that this effect persists if the axion has a topological mass term coupling the Kalb-Ramond potential to a U(1) gauge field. Such mass terms arise in the low-energy effective theory of the string.
