Three Cards Problem

This is an elementary yet difficult problem in probability. I'm ashamed to say I got it wrong.

A box contains three cards: a card that is black on both sides, one that is white on both sides and a card that is black on one side and white on the other.

You withdraw a card at random and see that the visible face is black. What is the probability that the other side of this card is also black?
