I did not find a passenger list but I found as video of people boarding the General W.M. Black at Bremerhaven, Germany. I could not find a date for this film. The film shows many of the passengers. I thought you would be interested in watching it.

Dear Ms. Roman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
According to our records, in 1951 the Department of the Army destroyed all manifests, logs of vessels, and troop movement files of United States Army transports for World War II and most of the passenger lists.
Beginning on July 9, 1949, many Army Transport ships were transferred to the Navy Military Sea Transportation Service (MSTS). We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Army Transport Data Sheets, 1949 - 1949 in the Records of Naval Operating Forces (Record Group 313) that may include the 1949 records of the General W.M. Black when it was transferred to the MSTS on March 1, 1950. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
