The first, from what I can find online, was The Johnson-Jeffries Fight in 1910.

It was banned in South Africa due to Johnson, a black boxer, defeating Jeffries, a white boxer.

The first to be banned in America was The Birth of a Nation in 1915 due to its racial content & some call, glorification of the Klu Klux Klan.
