Roy Dubuis’ blackface in the censored episode.

For the interpreters of Emilie and Ovila, wanting to erase history in this way is wrong on several levels.

“I was very surprised, explained Marina Orsini Register. I guess we scratch to scratch. I think they can keep all of that in context without denying in any way that the times, the beliefs, the ways of doing things are unfair. It’s been 32 years and we’re talking about a story that first relates our story at the end of 19.e century.”

The 55-year-old actress sees the scene positively as the youth represented the three kings in their ethnic differences, a time when shows were not much. He believes a cautionary note could have been placed at the beginning of the episode to warn the more sensitive.

This is what ICI TOU.TV has done and is also broadcasting Daughters of Caleb reality. “This project is presented as it was originally created and may have various social and cultural representations today”, we read.

“When it’s time to be angry and uplifted, I’m all for it,” added the actress. But there, I see it looking for errors.

“If we cannot reflect an era, we are not a good writer,” said the 75-year-old author who published History in 1986. I reflected the era! We will not change, we will not touch history! It’s a lack of judgment. I can’t believe it!”, she scolded.
