Answer: Since you've only recently planted your Black Eyed Susans, and since it's the middle of summer, you can naturally expect some transplant shock. There's not much you can do other than to give the plants a chance to recover. You might try shading them from hot afternoon sunshine until they recover. I've been known to prop up a piece of cardboard to provide temporary shade, but you may come up with a more clever protection device. Once the roots of your plants become established the plant will put out new growth. Eventually you can prune off the dead or wilted stems and flowers. Best wishes with your Black Eyed Susans!
