Crayola Corrections

Cool Crayola fact from a Core77 Design Magazine review of the writings of Rachel Berger:
Only three times in its hundred-year history has the Crayola company changed the name of a crayon. Prussian Blue became Midnight Blue in 1958 and Indian Red was renamed Chestnut in 1999, both in response to requests from educators. In 1962, the company voluntarily changed Flesh to Peach, partially in response to the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.
Thank you, Crayola, for recognizing and changing your non-politically-correct ways!
