Change font color of a specific table header with CSS

Need a little help. I've been trying to accomplish this but have come up short. I can change the background color, alignment, etc, but cannot change the font color! I've tried !important and that doesn't help either.

#view_67 thead th.field_69 {
	background-color:#fffdcb;
	color: red;
  }

Very helpful tip. Thank you!

Thanks Brad, you're awesome!

Your target is the anchor tag inside the table header, try:

#view_67 thead th.field_69 > a {
    color: red !Important;
  }
