Could black people own property before the civil war?

Property laws, for both real estate and personal property, are state laws, so this depended on the state. Some states, such as Illinois, were supposedly "whites only" by state law, with no black person legally allowed within the borders of the state. But, generally, in states without such restrictions on black residency, free blacks would have the same property rights as anyone else - just a much harder time enforcing those right in court, if that became necessary. Some free blacks were actually slave owners themselves. Every southern state had a substantial population of free blacks, many of whom owned their own farms or businesses, and their homes. For slaves the situation was different - as they were themselves property, whether they could own anything would depend on the degree of personal freedom allowed by their owner. I have never heard of a slave who owned land, but it may have been theoretically posible. Some slaves had valuable skills, in building trades, for instance. Some masters allowed these workmen to sell their services to others when they weren't needed about the master's business. And while some masters rented out their slaves and pocketed the money they earned, others allowed the slave to keep all or part of his earnings, and some were able eventually to buy their own freedom.
