Thomas Day was the first Lunar Society figure publicly to attack slavery. In 1773 he read a newspaper report about a slave working for a ship’s captain who fell in love with a white female servant.

Paleontologists have known about the error since 1903 and the dino with its correct head has since been  known as…
