A few weeks ago, the Turner Classic Movie channel dedicated an evening to the "Pioneers of African American Cinema" dvd set, including this bizarre little film, which I have to say I enjoyed a lot as it avoided many of the stereotypes of the time, though not all, of course.

Keep up the great work.
