Ohuruogu, 29, looked in the form to challenge for the world title when she won the 400m at the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games on Saturday.
And her 20-year-old sister Vicky is also in the squad as part of the 4x400m relay team.
"I am very proud to have been asked by Neil to be the team captain," said Ohuruogu.
"I am not normally someone who likes the spotlight, but this is a lovely feeling, to be trusted in this role.
"Having Vicky on the team really brings home the responsibility to me. If ever there was a reminder that there are stepping stones along the way and that the team captain is there to help young athletes settle in, then having my younger sister nearby is definitely it.
"I hope to lead by example when I get on the track in Moscow."
Black said Ohuruogu is "one of the Britain's greatest ever athletes" and added: "I know she will do a brilliant job of motivating and looking out for her team-mates."
