There are records of black visitors to Britain
from the time of the Roman occupation. However, the continuous history
of Black people in Britain dates from the mid 16th century and the
beginning of the slave trade. Many Black people "employed"
as slave-servants, musicians, footman, soldiers and sailors have
visited and worked in Brighton.
