  You are indeed correct that many slaveholders were black. The source below gives the 1860 numbers as about 3000 black slaveholders owning about 20000 slaves. I haven't personally verified the numbers in the 1860 Census, but if I recall correctly, in additition, the Five Civilized Tribes owned over 7000 slaves in the Indian Territory.
