Not to the same degree of historical significance as their Caucasian contemporaries, but from the view of slavery in general, slavery was widely frowned upon; thus anyone who was a slave owner would have had the same level of fame or notoriety, depending on where in the country this question would be asked (particularly, in the 'North' or the 'South' within the United States during that time). However, in general, African Americans were, regardless of stature (i.e. slave owner, free, indentured servant, slave, etc.) viewed as inferior to their Caucasian counterparts.

Were there black slave owners?

Not in the USA because to be a slave you had to have black blood in your system which means that if you had black blood in your system you were not considered human but cattle and therefore a slave. However outside America there were plenty of black slave traders. And black tribesmen involved in selling other black people into slavery. The whites were the end users; the blacks and the Arabs were the suppliers. This is not true at all. William Ellison was a Black slave owner in South Carolina and the majority of slave owners in New Orleans were Black. William Ellison, whose slave name was April, became a slave magnate and expanded his business throughout the south, from South Carolina to the Mississippi River.
