open the outliner, select the perspective camera. go to the attribute editor. there, you should find the environment tab. under the tab, i think you will find the option to change the color of your background..

well, the environment tab is for the render view not the actual viewport
---
for viewport go to window>preferences>colors>3d views

if you are lazy like me and just want the background color to be black or a darker/lighter shade of grey....you can always use the hot key "alt+b"
