 Sanders of the River (1935)

"Sanders of the River is a 1935 British film directed by the 
Hungarian-British director, Zoltán Korda, based on the stories 
of Edgar Wallace. It is set in Nigeria during the British colonial 
era. The lead Nigerian characters were played by African Americans, 
Paul Robeson and Nina Mae McKinney.

[Robeson's] participation in the movie earned him rebuke from black 
leaders including a notable scolding from black nationalist and 
anti-colonial visionary Marcus Garvey. Robeson eventually went on to 
distance himself from the film." Wiki & Criterion Reflections
