The motion of a black hole subject to external influences as observed by a distant observer is considered. Zerilli's equations are used to find the displacement of the black hole and the structure of the metric in the presence of other gravitating bodies. It is shown that in a region in which the curvature of space is small the contribution of the field of the accelerated black hole has the same form as the field of an ordinary body and that the motion of the black hole in the quasistationary approximation takes place in accordance with the laws of Newtonian dynamics.
