    It is admirable that Vidor wanted to show "the Southern Negro as he is" in this historically important, all-black musical film intended for a general audience as an authentic representation of black culture in the 1920s, but it is also unfortunately very condescending and artificial.

    Yeah. Not much to mine of interest here. Blacks on screen! Ooh wow! It's a wee bit condescending.
