Interesting People # 127 - William Davidson

William Davidson was an Afro Caribbean who became involved in radical politics and was part of a plot to kill several members of the British government.

(He was executed at Newgate Prison on the 1 May, 1820 for high treason. The plot became known as the Cato Street Conspiracy, but it's not usually taught in British schools, I guess because there was no gunpowder involved.)
