Actually, the first man in America to own a black man as a slave was a black man himself. His name was Anthony Johnson and the slave he laid claim to was a man named John Casor. John was Anthony's indentured servant whom he refused to grant freedom to when his time was up. He took his claim to court and the court granted Anthony ownership of John for life. First black slave in America. As you are such a fan of history.
