I have run across a couple of references of Free Blacks voluntarily enslaving themselves, specifically in Henry County VA sometime in the 1850's but can't find the specific case right now. However there are a number of examples in Guild's Black Laws of VA:
1856 Chapters 432-435
There are a number of laws referring to free black voluntary enslavement.
