from the book The life of frederick douglass theres' anopther quote saying hoever long i might remain a slave in form, the day had passed forever when i could be a slave in fact."
It means that even though he had to work as a slave for a slave holder, his thoughts and beliefs could not be controlled as his work and body were.
This quote means that even though he might be a slave by definition (for example he has a master that owns him) in his heart and mind he is not a slave and he thinks and acts like a free man now and will not let anyone boss him around as if he were a slave.
I agree with Libby.
