"Hearts in Dixie" (1929), is one of the first all-talkie, big-studio production to boast a predominately African-American cast. "Hearts in Dixie" unfolds as a series of sketches of life among American blacks. It featured characters with dignity, who took action on their own, and who weren't slaves.Fact|date=October 2008 The plot focuses on Grandfather Nappus (Clarence Muse), his daughter, Chloe (Bernice Pilot), her young son, Chinaquapin (Eugene Jackson), and her husband, Gummy (Stepin Fetchit). To make certain his grandson Chinaquapin does not end up like his father or become tainted by the superstitions that dominate the community, the grandfather, decides to send the boy away. One particularly tender scene shows Nappus love for his grandson, whom he sends North for schooling. The film ends with the youngster's departure aboard a riverboat. [Langman, Larry.
