These type of party go a far way back to the 18th century’s.
The presence of black people living in Bristol can be traced back over many centuries. Many came here in the 18th century because of the transatlantic slave trade . The city of Bristol was involved in this trade for over 100 years. Over 2,000 slave ships left Bristol and sailed to West Africa to trade for enslaved Africans, who were then taken across the Atlantic Ocean to the British-owned islands in the Caribbean. The enslaved Africans were put to work on the plantations. They produced goods that were then shipped back to Bristol. Slaves themselves were never brought to Bristol in large numbers. A few came to the city from the Caribbean as personal servants to their plantation-owning masters. Often a slave ship’s owner allowed the captain an enslaved African as a form of payment.
