Roald Dahl Books CENSORED To Be More “Inclusive”

Roald Dahl was a children's book writer from the early 20th century. He wrote such classics as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, Matilda, and The Witches, all of which have been adapted into movies. Despite Dahl's popularity with audiences, his books have come under scrutiny for not being "inclusive" enough. In this episode of America Uncovered, we look at the edits being made to his books, the role of "sensitivity readers" in censoring his writing, and how they are changing the meaning, style and storyline of the books.
