A super video of the song: Billy Joel - "We Didn't Start the Fire"  

Around the 1750s, London became the home of many Blacks, as well as Jews, Irish, Germans and Huguenots . According to Gretchen Gerzina in her Black London , by the mid-18th century, Blacks comprised somewhere between one and three per cent of the London populace. [81] [82] Evidence of the number of Black residents in the city has been found through registered burials. Some black people in London resisted slavery through escape. [81] Leading Black activists of this era included Olaudah Equiano , Ignatius Sancho and Quobna Ottobah Cugoano .

The challenge remains, however, to explain the context in which these objects were made and appreciated in the past. Explication forms the motivation behind the BM’s purchase in 1999 of the Warren Cup, a Roman silver drinking vessel decorated with scenes of homosexual love-making, probably made during the reign of Nero (AD 54-68). Had the Museum purchased the cup when it came up for sale in the 1950s, when homosexuality was still illegal in Britain, it would almost certainly have caused an outcry. Today, in contrast, the new acquisition stands in the centre of the Wolfson Gallery of Roman Antiquities (Room 70).
